Watch This Movie
Our reporter comes to a family in which the use of physical punishment is regarded as a regular educational instrument. The girl's father - strongly believing that whacking is necessary in order to prepare his pubescent daughter for her future life - has offered us to record the raw reality of one of his punishments. In addition, the reporter shall be speaking to other family members, too. And that includes the daughter who is just about to receive some merciless lashing and her mother who is to actively assist her husband.
At the beginning, the father explains why he uses physical punishment in the first place. He is ready to share his opinion on devices used for this purpose and even talks about his daughter's nakedness, a necessary integral element of such educational activities.
A hidden camera records the painful punishment itself. Please, do not forget that this is no movie but a harsh reality. All those lashes you can see are as hard - or possibly even harder - as any spanking you have seen in films. Not even the parents can stay calm, the whole situation being so extremely personal. Beating is getting faster and faster, harder and harder. The girl, raving in pain, is crying real tears coming from her heart, full of sorrow and humiliation. She has to be held by her mother; otherwise she would surly try to escape.
What is she going to tell us about her feelings? And how about her mother - convinced just like her husband that beating is the best educational instrument? All these questions and answers offer an opportunity to peep into the intimate privacy of people for whom such situations represent an integral part of their everyday life.
Hidden Camera, film no. 9 from the production of Rigid East Co., has also another dimension. It gives us an opportunity to look into private affairs of an average family, where an almost grown-up girl is subjected to physical punishment and compelled to suffer completely naked. Do not forget that even though we may dream about such situations from time to time, it is a harsh reality for many families with adolescent daughters. Such confrontation between our imagination and the reality can help to crystallize our own opinion. It is entirely up to us which dimension we choose. Whether we decide to think about the film, about its content and circumstances, and possibly make a conclusion, or whether we simply sit back and enjoy it.
That is why Hidden Camera represents a real opportunity for everyone.
Comments on Hidden Camera
So... the first half of the movie is a bust, unless you know Russian (Czech? Slovak?). Otherwise, no feelings shared. No exciting questions answered. No intriguing rationalizations posited. However, the second half of the movie delivers a truly spectacular spanking that reminds us pain is a universal language. You don't need to speak this family's tongue to appreciate their firm hands & battered bottoms.
Speaking of battered bottoms -- when the interviews wrap up, the daughter stands & reveals her profoundly beaten buttocks to the camera. In the following scene, her father sets up a hidden camera, and her mother delivers her to him. I'm thinking this scene must've taken place BEFORE the interviews, because the daughter's cheeks are pale & unblemished when her dad first pulls her pants down.
Whatever. Her spanking starts abruptly after some angry scolding. He handles her roughly, like a thing that disgusts him. She's naked from the waist down, jerking on his lap as his hand descends again & again on her poor, flaring cheeks. There's a kinda music as he barks at her in his deep, growly voice, while her high-pitched pleas for mercy sorta harmonize. And the smacks, of course, provide percussion!
The "hidden camera" aspect is interesting. On one hand, I think it gives the footage a raw, intimate edge. Feels voyeuristic, like we're peeking thru a hole in a wall. However, since the camera is hidden, it never moves. No novel angles or close-ups of red cheeks, or views of her anguished face, etc. Fortunately, the spanking is only about 10 minutes long, so it's over before things get monotonous.
After administering an over-the-knee, bare-bottomed spanking, Father brandishes a whip-thin cane, which whizzes thru the air as he shows it off. He spanks her some more with his hand, and then orders her to strip naked. She bends over, her butt facing the camera, and the whipping begins!
Aren't cane strokes usually meted out one at a time? This guy isn't counting anything, he's intent on tanning her hide as best he can. Eventually, Dad brings Mom in to hold Daughter down, and things just get crazy from here. This guy whips her ass like he's trying to kill a roach that keeps popping back up... Not surprisingly, the girl flips out.
It's a shocking sight: a girl being held down by two big adults, one of whom thrashes her naked flesh with a nasty implement. Flopping like a fish outta water, she screams & cries & struggles to escape. Finally, she's left writhing in agony and exhaustion. Whew! This was one extreme punishment, with somewhat creepy familial overtones. Gotta hand it to Rigid East for bringing this disturbing situation to life with vibrant color & sound, and fearless "performances."
