By relating himself to the victimized female characters of traumas which are inevitable linked to the history of the “Other” sex, as being raped, getting married, loosing ones baby child, becoming a prostitute etc, Ane Lan cunningly manage to blur the relationship between victim and molester, thus suggesting that the heartfelt and supposedly sincere participation in the trauma of the female victims becomes as a participation in a larger ritual related to a psycho-social complex whose implications goes far beyond the mere issue of gender and construction of identity.
