a twisted thriller with jolts in tone



Facing ‘A promising young woman’ (Promising young woman, 2020) is one of those tasks that requires surgical movements in order not to touch the wrong fibers, since her cinema focus with message, an important proposition because it is relevant at a time when the I also He has turned the tables with reason at the forefront and the right background, so that everything he achieves or provokes will be judged under that filter of “necessary cinema”.

The ideas posed by Emerald Fennell’s film make it a kind of genre manifesto that creates an automatic veil over her cinematic approach, which belongs to a kind of genre manifesto. indefinable between indie drama, thriller and some cult artifact will drowned by the adornments of a post ‘Bad Girls’ (Mean Girls, 2004) pop youth cinema that infiltrates musical moments that try to lighten the nihilistic residue that adheres to his speech even above his characters.


The greatest success of Fennell’s script is relegating the past of Cassie, its protagonist, to a secondary plane upon which his avenging journey will be built, making the juiciest part of the movie unfold like a mystery, with the grievance of an old dead friend as the main motivation to try to teach different men trying to take advantage of her or put people (of any gender) in embarrassing situations . ) that allow attitudes in a more or less veiled way and look the other way.

A promising character

This is without a doubt the most laid-back and best-constructed part of the movie, full of Reflection on the institutional acceptance of certain attitudes related to sex., of behaviors that suppose an injustice for the victims and how the social position can overcome the facts, revealing real situations, details seen in real universities that redirect the side of the black comedy and the thriller of the film towards the realization of a revenge based in lessons that, while not involving apparent physical harm, are morally dubious.

But those moments work because, beyond their didactic ambivalence, they have as their protagonist Carey Mulligan, in a spectacular role, with cynical looks, accumulated sadness and the weight of responsibility too deep in the soul to believe in love, which endows a defeated character with greater ferocity, who does not fully understand why the family of his deceased friend does not support his crusade, which he sees in revenge as the only balm.

It is in this particular moment when it is revealed in the film that Cassie’s only hope, a boy who dances to Paris Hilton songs – a millennial moment of pop culture irony with an expired bun – totally perfect for her, turns out to be one. of the accomplices of the rape that led her friend to suicide. And here the film abandons its comedy pose and decides to become a revenge movie in which he ends up falling on the woman’s back, as an additional punishment.

A third anticlimactic and bitter act

In one of the bitterest moments in recent cinema, “A promising young woman ‘makes us witness the death of the protagonist in an exhausting scene, extremely unpleasant and cruelly sustained over time, as if he wanted to come and explain the danger of seeking revenge or for a moment, that the patriarchy always gets its way. A kind of rereading of the subplot of the wedding of ‘Very Bad Things’ (1998) that seems to carry an anti-reactionary message, but that ends up having the opposite effect.

In a hasty epilogue, we witness Cassie’s plan B, an afterlife revenge, anyway, in which It resorts to what it seems that they have told us in the first hour of the tape, but with a not very ingenious development, quite predictable and that misses opportunities to do something more spectacular like send the incriminating video to all mobile phones. A plan that has previously been made clear is carried out without much glamor, returning to the use of pop cues that scratch the viewer that still digests the incomprehensible cruelty of the previous death.

'Revenge' proves that the rape and revenge genre can be updated without losing its grindhouse essence

Promising young woman“It never goes as crazy as its trailer promises, it does offer a cocktail of moments for Tumblr, eccentric comedy thanks to moments with Cassie’s parents, Korean thriller and finally horror film and drama with feminist message. Between versions of Britney Spears with (more) message and nurse costumes with colored wigs, she sneaks a sordid use of his main character, something he does not deserve, and his sacrifice is perceived as a ritual for the greater good which is to expose the viewer with guilt on the subject of the film.

The resemblance to “Carrie 2”

This is a decision that a priori can be brave, but that also indicates frivolity in the handling of its pieces to achieve a greater “lesson”. It is not a death with honor, it is not essential that the plan comes to an end, and it is free and without sufficient reward for its protagonist and the viewer.. This makes the tone problems accentuate and cloud a film with undoubted moments of interest, but which relies its value letter on the debate that will develop around it.

If it is posed as a challenge to the subgenre rape and revenge, all it does is reverse the unpleasant moment of the genre and place it in a moment when it is deprived of any final or curative catharsis, but, as much as the film’s speech tries to be a shock, the moment is still there, and it is much worse than that of many films of the genre, because of its staging and the way it is included in a film. what sometimes it’s “black comedy” and sometimes it’s a pop artifact.

If showing this has a fair alibi, for the content it deals with, it is something that is left to the viewer’s judgment, but we are not seeing something specifically new either. It does not function as a satire of a well-known cinema with a masculine gaze, nor is it entirely new or challenging for the cinema of the 90s and 2000s. In fact, a quick read of its structure seems to have been taken point by point from the story of “Carrie 2: Anger” (The Rage: Carrie 2, 1999).

The 17 best feminist movies of all time

Paddles with the current

In that, a new Carrie defended the honor of her suicidal partner after being humiliated by the group of the high school soccer team, who dedicate themselves to having sex with all the possible students as a challenge. Specific moments of this, like the board of directors of the institute overlooking the sins of a son of someone important, or the discovery that her ideal boy participated in the death of her friend as a trigger for her revenge are fully illustrative that “A promising young woman” is not entirely new.

In addition, ‘Carrie 2’ is a precedent in horror cinema aimed at teenage audiences of 22 years ago, when something brave and groundbreaking was supposed to pose something like that, to place the same story at a time when the tables have turned, but letting his empowered character end up like this, also gives him an aura of premature expiration that does not suppose as much earthquake as he pretends, of cinema too delighted to have met, that aims to reproduce keys of a more underground and cool cinema, but sits placidly on the couch from the conventional thriller longer range.

No more damsels in distress: 'Colossal' and female empowerment

All in all, the greatest value of “A promising young woman“It’s in the little moments and the development of a good character that Carey Mulligan manages to make memorable, but whose fate is as depressing and tacky a twist as Glenn’s death in ‘The Walking Dead’, which renders the film controversial but leaves room for doubt about the next Emerald Fennell, which of course will have our full attention.
