This Polish-German-Hungarian production is one of the best Polish films of 1998. The main point of this film are the feelings of Russian woman forced by misfortune to become a luxurious prostitute. There are lots of nude scenes, but made with exquisite taste and not unsuitable even for underage viewers. The next positive flaw of this film is the fact that Ewa Telega - one of the actresses - has been awarded the prize on the Festival of Gdynia
the most prestigious film festival in Poland. Is it sufficent
recommendation? I think yes - you should see it, if you only have opportunity - at least once. You won't certainly regret.
