Everyone in Justine's (Garance Marillier) family is a vet, and a vegetarian. At 16, she's a brilliant and promising student. When she starts at veterinary school, she enters a decadent, merciless and dangerously seductive world. During the first week of hazing rituals, desperate to fit in whatever the cost, she strays from her family principles when she eats raw meat for the first time. Justine will soon face the terrible and unexpected consequences of her actions as her true self begins to emerge.

Raw . hmmm...maybe . - Raw review by porky

Spoiler Alert

Its an Ok movie, infact if im honest its a rather good movie, Not badly made ,Not badly acted, Very French in values .

Personally I Absolutely Hated it and Everyone in it .what a bunch of truly horrible people they are in a French Vet School.

Its Odd , its .....hmmm to describe it..... i found it Very Annoying , but that was mainly because i found the people in it annoying .

No real explanation to WHY Cannibalism crops up . no real story apart from the obvious. certainly no real hero / heroine to root for .

Vet School seemed to be all about the Students Abusing one another as much as possible all term long.

A Massive Missile Attack on the whole Veterinary School would have been a better ending for me .

A Coming-of-age Horror Masterpiece - Raw review by JW

Spoiler Alert

You may know about Julia Ducournau’s Raw as the “cannibal horror story that caused people to faint at the Toronto film festival”. Yes, it did. And yes, the squeamish should most certainly brace themselves. But Raw is much, much more than just a brutally bloody body horror – though it is most certainly that as well.

Aside from the grisly and guaranteed-to-shock scenes of anthropophagy, Raw is in fact one of the decade’s most brilliant and beautiful coming-of-age dramas, far more a film about the challenges and apprehensions of “fitting in” than it is mindless gore.

There’s nothing mindless about this film. The characters are confused and complex as they head off to veterinary school to do what college kids do – express themselves, find themselves, explore their identities and sexuality. What happens to our protagonist Justine (Garance Marillier) and her older sister Alexia (Ella Rumpf) – daughters of militant vegetarians who took their own veterinary degrees at this most brutal of schools many years before – is something wholly unexpected. Cannibalism, indeed, isn’t present for cannibalism’s sake, but as a metaphor for… Rebellion? Disobedience? Love? Submission? Carnal desire? Yes, to all and more besides.

Raw is shocking. Raw is hard to watch. But Raw is also compelling, at times laugh-out-loud funny, brilliantly acted (Marillier is truly excellent), and one of the most original films I’ve seen in a very long time. Masterfully shot, superbly paced, and beautifully stylised, Raw is a film that cinephiles everywhere should most definitely get their teeth into.

Pretentious, over-rated French 'Grand Guignol' flick - Raw review by PV

Spoiler Alert

Well, if it's cannibalism you want, I would certainly recommend watching Tony Hopkins in Silence of the Lambs or Hannibal, or maybe even Wrong Turn, rather than this tired drama which hasn't got an original bone in its body. Other cannibal movies are available.

No doubt made to appeal to and shock teenagers, I didn't find this shocking just silly - and unbelievable. Moreover, the 2 sisters main characters were so annoying I honestly wouldn't have cared if someone had stuffed em in a roasting tin and popped em in the over at gas mark 7.

The vet school featured is so fake an unbelievable - such hazing died out years ago.

I saw the final twist coming a mile off too.

The gay North African character shines in this dross like a diamond in a gung heap.

1.5 stars rounded up.
