Thom Fitzgerald Switches Gears
27 September 2002 | by (Boston, MA) – See all my reviews

In a stunning turn from his previous films, the director of the magnificent THE HANGING GARDEN plunges himself into the ethical morass of the sex trade and poverty of Bucharest, Romania. In a remarkably successful bit of casting, Fitzgerald himself plays a pornographer sent to Romania to exploit the young, inexpensive female labor there. Upon his arrival he befriends an equally corrupt Canadian diplomat, as well as several of the poor and outcast of Bucharest society. Fitzgerald skillfully ties this lives of the poor outcasts with the hundreds of wild dogs that roam the city, and a young man with a temperament ill-suited for his job of catching them for disposal. And with his character, Fitzgerald creates a morally ambiguous man who keeps surprising the viewer in this powerful and wonderfully made film.
