Title: Provokation

Also known as:

Year: 2002

Genre: Short / Extreme

Language: None

Runtime: 16 min

Director: Marian Dora

Writer: Marian Dora


A man secretly watches his wife as she sleeps, goes to the bathroom, and undresses, and other private things. This hidden fetish of his makes him to doing horrible things to the wife, ultimately leading to her demise.

Our thoughts:
Director Marian Dora is most known for "Cannibal", a movie that has become quite a hit in the extreme genre, and on one of the "Cannibal" releases, you also get a few short films by the said director. "Provokation" is one of them, and probably the only one I felt was worth reviewing as the other two were shorter, and lacked more plot than this one did. Which actually says alot since this isn't much of a plot really. The other ones were also more artistic, which makes the lack of plot more okay. But in the end, "Provokation" was the better of the three despite all that.

It starts out with a guy staring at a photo of a girl. I honestly didn't know at first if itwas a sister, a friend, a roommate, or his girlfriend/wife. I think it is his wife though. He then walks in watching her sleep in the bed, and takes a discrete look at her butt/between her legs. She then wakes up and goes to the bathroom, and of course this sleazebag sneaks outside, looking through the peephole as she does her business. Eventually he "goes for it", but she doesn't seem to wanna do anything with him. This is where his urge for her really pushes him, as he forces her to give him a blowjob, and he then continues to sexually and violently assault her. She is not completely undressed, laying on the floor, getting several kicks between her legs, and eventually she's killed by strangling. But this doesn't exactly stop him from fulfilling his sexual urges. One scene in particular here made me feel like it was only done to say "hey daddy, look how controversial I can make this movie!". Needless to say, some of the things that happen might be rather disturbing, but sometimes it doesn't give the impact it should give because it was only there to push it more (which it didn't really need).

It's not poorly made in any way, the disturbing stuff does what they set out to. The beginning of the movie drags it down a bit though, in the way it was filmed, how the actors..acted and everything felt very amateurish up until the rape. But it's a short film after all, so if you like extreme movies, there's no reason for you to skip this one. Sometimes you just want to watch a movie that is as simple as real life can be at times, no complicated plot.

Positive things:
- If you're in the mood for a short and extreme film, "Provokation" might do the trick.
- Alot of explicit nudity made it slightly more disturbing.

Negative things:
- I felt a few details and the knife part towards the end could've been left out, they made it feel like it was trying too hard.
- Amateurish beginning.

Gore: 0.5/5
Nudity: 4/5
