​What's it about?

In Justine’s family everyone is a vet and a vegetarian. At 16, Justine is forced to eat meat for the first time in her life. Unexpected consequences emerge as her true self begins to form.


Why do we love it?

Dark, mysterious and beautifully shot. Watching this feels like you're watching a car crash in the sense that you know you shouldn't stare but you can't look away. There's a metaphor about coming of age underneath all the shock as well.

Who's in it?

Garance Marillier - Justine

Ella Rumpf - Alexia

Rabah Nait Oufella - Adrien


Who made it?

Julia Ducournau - Writer & Director
