I think this movie is sexist and support the rape, but it match the test...

I won't say the movie is sexist but it's definitely perverse in its approach of women and sexuality, and kind of promoting rape culture. I actually felt insulted as a woman. But yes, it passes the test.

Contrary to Mathilde, i think this movie doesn't support rape. If anything, this movie isn't even about the rape itself. It's about power and control.

Michele is a powerful woman, she has control of every aspects in her life. But when the rape happened, someone took her control from her. This film is about Michele's journey to take back control from the event that might be her undoing.
