don't let the rating put you off...
10 March 2004 | by (australia) – See all my reviews



I am a script writer and I am currently writing a theme on prostitution and its characterization. I was so glad I saw this documentary on SBS the other night because it was exactly what I was hoping for. The dialogues are very realistic and after watching this you do get a somewhat good indication of the lives of a 'common' prostitute. It really does depict the contradictions of life and its limitations. So if you do enjoy the study of human interactions and characterizations, this is the film for you. I rate it 8/10
