Plot: Chihiro is raped by three men and it is captured on video camera. She leaves her hometown and prepares to marry a colleague five years later, when one of the rapists arrives and says the others are on their way. He behaves like her long-lost lover and mistreats her again. Chihiro takes revenge, kills him and puts him in a freezer. The other rapists are awaiting a similar fate...
«Within the rape-revenge genre, Freeze Me breaks ground from contemporary Japanese fare in a number of ways. While the text and most of the characters are fairly two-dimensional (after all, many Japanese screen writers now come from anime backgrounds), Chihiro is drawn in a much more complex fashion and the audience has time to discover that she is endearing and full of the kind of spunkiness that characterized showgirls in the light-hearted American comedies of the early 1930s. Hers is an intimate, common and close-up portrayal, full of everyday happenings and concerns. Reinforcing that, much of the film looks through her eyes or into her eyes through the entire ordeal rather than objectifying her with long shots and gratuitous views of her nakedness.»
