I am in the throws of watching a film called 'Revenge', which has been likened to 'I Spit On Your Grave'. Before deciding to try it, I read four reviews written by Amazon customers, all giving it a thoroughly good synopsis.
Just shortly after the film was fully underway, I had already come to my own conclusion about Matilda's height. She is wearing trainers and shorts, and looks a far cry from the sort of 'dumpy' effect than such attire would have on a shorter girl, or even a girl of her height, but with different proportions. I reckoned on Matilda being 'small model-girl' height, and by that I mean 5ft6.75, which, with catwalk heels and her long legs in proportion to her body, would indeed qualify for being signed up by any self-respecting model agency.
Now onto the film! I can understand the comparisons to 'I Spit...', but this girl lacks the innocence of the virginal Jennifer from the 1978 film. She is also a Jennifer, but to say she is worldly-wise would be ridiculous. I worked out that she was 24/25 at the time of the making of the film, but she seems to have a hell of a lot to learn about trusting people she has just met, so maybe she's supposed to be playing younger, though I can relate to the same trusting traits she shows from when I was her age myself. She has arrived in a European or French-speaking country, and her only company are three strange men. Alas, not only does she flirt with the one who is passable in the looks department, she goes the whole way, first performing the kind of sexual act that this married bloke is not likely to refuse. I was saying, "You silly girl! You can't do THAT on someone you barely know!"
Thereafter, the three blokes and Jennifer have a drinking session, during which Jennifer flirts and dances erotically. I was yelling at my TV, "If you took off your beer goggles, you'd NEVER flirt with HIM!"
During the so-called party, you notice a polythene bagful of some kind of root. Jennifer picks it up and one of the men tells her to leave it alone, saying that it causes hallucinations, and one experimenting fellow carved off one of his legs while under its influence - and bled to death, but felt no pain at all. I knew that this would play a part in the film!
While the guy she thinks is her new boyfriend is out of sight, the one she was dancing with tried it on. When she responds with "No!" he can't accept it and retorts, "What is it about me? Why him and not me?"
She replies, "You're not my type!" He says, "In what way aren't I your type?"
To the viewer it is blatantly obvious, but she tells him, "You're TOO SHORT!"
He is only a little bit taller than her, but you can tell what a SHORT short man looks like without needing comparisons to anybody. That gives the audience another massive great clue as to actress Matilda's height.
He goes on to force himself onto the screaming girl, while the other, even fatter man turns a blind eye, and ups the volume on the TV to drown out her pitiful noises of protest.
By now the viewer is realising the evil attitude of all three, but worse is to come. Far, far worse, for when the emotional girl says to the one she actually consented to, that she'll tell his wife, whom he has been speaking to over the phone, the man tells the others that drastic action is required, and insinuates to the girl that she isn't fit to say his wife's name. What follows is attempted murder, as the poor girl is pushed off a cliff and impaled through the branch of a tree. The three swine think they are rid of her, but miraculously, she lives.
It is then that you realise that this girl isn't at all as stupid as she's naïve. When she regains consciousness, blood pouring from her mouth like a tap, she manages to break free from the tree and start walking, still with the branch sticking through her fragile torso. Then when she manages to sit down, she opens up a little heart locket, wherein the viewer sees that she's taken some of the hallucinogen come painkiller with her! You think, "Clever girl! That's going to come in handy now!"
At her age, I'd never even heard about qaterisation to seal veins, let alone known how to set about it, but she knew! She ate the root and started seeing things almost immediately, but she couldn't feel pain anymore, so she takes out the branch and proceeds, also carving a design into her belly, which probably had some kind of mystical meaning of revenge - I don't know!
Now the girl is ready to get her own back....
I haven't seen this to an end yet, and I noticed earlier today that Matilda is going to be on Film 4 at 9 o'clock in a movie called 'Rings', which, from what I've read, is a remake of the Japanese horror film 'The Ring'. I am really looking forward to it, as this time, she - hopefully - will be starring alongside some well-known names, making for far easier assessment of her height.
Matilda is a real find, and an extremely promising young actress. She is 26 years old, and I can see her going far in her career. I don't think I've ever found myself getting so carried away while talking about a film before.
Right now, I'm going with Rob's and everyone else's guess of 5ft6.5. I am vote number 8! 😊👍

This is about what I'd have guessed five seven at best certainly looks a few inches taller than average hope to see her in more films enjoyed her performance in rings not the best film but a step up from ring 2 the American version

If Matilda lists herself as 170cm, then that's exactly what she gets from me this evening!
