Traps

Traps

Synopsis

A daring black comedy of violence, violation and veterinary practice. A vet, Lenka, after being raped by two men, uses her particular expertise to exact her revenge. Chytilová was a filmmaker with a deserved reputation as provocateur and philosopher and Traps is an enquiry by both "victim" and filmmaker on the social structures and attitudes which condone such a violation. Tragic and comic, wild and angry, the film presents a unique view of contemporary society where warped morality, greed and twisted masculine attitudes are commonplace and unchallenged.
