Quirky and disjointed
12 January 2008 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

A very quirky and disjointed narrative, mainly about an underpaid country girl working as a schoolteacher (Emma, stunningly and disturbingly played by Johanna Ter Steege, a Dutch actress, whose dialogue was clearly post-dubbed into Hungarian), with her roommate (Bobe) occasionally getting a look-in. There's gratuitous nudity and sex aplenty, as we see Emma take her morning shower (in a really dingy shower block), awoken to hear/see her roommate loudly having sex with a never-shown man, and Bobe joining a group of other women (all equally underpaid) auditioning as extras for a movie director's Turkish Bath scene. About eight women are shown, at lightning-fast pace, individually posed in the nude, holding up numbers. (Strangely, we do not see either Emma or Bobe undress, nor is this sequence ever even mentioned again ! ) And meeting up with a street artist at a disco, whom she'd met previously, and following him up to his room with no persuasion.

There's also some very disturbing stuff; such as Emma's recurring nightmare, of helplessly rolling down a gravelly hill, naked and screaming; Emma's confusing treatment at the hands of her much-older married lover (the headmaster); and her reaction the way she is interrogated after Bobe's (probably wrongful) arrest for prostituion and possession of foreign currency.
