« FORCE OF HABIT paints a portrait of strength, resilience, and perseverance through claustrophobic narratives of male power women have to live through daily »
LOUD AND CLEAR
« Our intention was to put the viewer in that girl's shoes. How does it feel to live through those moments? No matter who you are or where you come from. That's something that film can do: it can go to emotion rather than just observing »
Elli Toivoniemi
« FORCE OF HABIT is a cartography of sexual abuse and harassment that, instead of implying a hierarchy of trauma or ‘seriousness’ of 2/3 these scenarios, instead reconfigures these experiences as elements of a collective whole and presents them as different parts of the exact same picture »
