frighteningly realistic, it looks like a true story,, 31 July 2001
Author: venop from Skopje, Macedonia

the film is very good, frighteningly realistic, and it looks like a true story, with a few of the names changed, but the association is clear (see the character of Jeremy Perlman), the connection between the main character and the prostitute is masterfully acted, the end is excellent... must see it to believe it
