Já, Olga Hepnarová (2016)

Storyline

Raised in Prague, Olga Hepnarová, a timid by nature and troubled child with no friends, was frequently bullied by her classmates. Living in such a strict family environment, feeling alone and unable to cope with life's issues, she gradually alienated herself, and as a result, Olga unable to fit in, she began feeling a raging hatred growing inside her, towards the indifference of a society that in the tragic end, left her destroyed by its people. Eventually, Olga rejected by everyone and marginalised, she meticulously plotted against society in silence, declaring her intention for revenge against her family and the world..

Olga Hepnarova was the last woman to be executed in the Czech Republic and for mass murder, no less so don't expect a barrel of laughs. Shot in chilly black and white, (more a wintry gray, in fact), Petr Kazda and Tomas Weinreb's film is a depressing study of a psychotic personality. In the title role Michalina Olszanska doesn't so much act as exists and barely at that. Although she never off the screen it's as if she's been vaporized, living in a shadow where the real person should be. I suppose in some respects the film falls into much the same category as "The Honeymoon Killers" or "Henry, Portrait of a Serial Killer" but they were lively, jolly affairs compared to this. With its strong lesbian element perhaps a more fitting comparison would be with "Monster" in which Charlize Theron played Aileen Wuornos. Worth seeing but grim.
