To me this film was more like a metaphor of a typical woman's life.
First she feels energetic and is allowed to do some of the normal stuff (typically done by men) like fighting, displaying her skills and intelligence (in real life - passing exams, things like that). Then when the time comes she gets married or "lobotomized"
and then becomes passive and lifeless and also submits to the man's advances even if she does not really like him. And she does that because she "sacrifices herself for others" like a woman abandoning her career to raise children etc.
It can be interpreted as both feminist and anti-feminist depending on how you regard the ending. In a feminist way it shows: "hey, this is what is being done to women, it is disturbing, do something!" In a non-feminist way: "this is what will happen to all women and this is the way it "should" be :")
To me it is more of a feminist film still because it actually shows that women CAN be:
- strong physically
- violent etc.
