"'No one becomes who they are in isolation' is the mantra as [Deepa] Mehta assembles six young actors to recreate the lives of the rapists as a way to understand what motivated them to perpetrate such a vile crime. Violence, child sexual abuse, poverty and social marginalization all play a role in turning six young men leading ordinary lives into a cadre of drunken louts. Despite a paucity of information, the actors [in Anatomy of Violence] do a decent job of sketching out characters remarkable only for their act of brutality."
