Austria, Germany | 2011 | Michael Glawogger
The myth of the happy hooker is dynamited in the impeccably shot new film by Austrian filmmaker Michael Glawogger (Workingman’s Death). It’s a frank, fearless a portrait of prostitution around the world that focuses on women of three different religions in three countries (Thailand, Bangladesh, Mexico). The film emphasizes not only the diverse cultures of exploitation but also the shared plight of those trapped in the profession. “Both a wrenching journalistic exploration of real life and something close to great cinema.” –Salon.com.
