An eye-candy from a promising director
17 March 2004 | by (Tel-Aviv) – See all my reviews

The story here is quite simple: The freedom journey of two whores and their re-capture by the ugly french pimp. But this film is unique in its aesthetic perception of the events, which gives us a more intimate narrative, using colour, sound and different moods of photography to convey the quest for freedom.

There are some camera movements in the film that surely will become this director's signature style. The film shows a brilliant work of rhythm, a good sense of control over the narrative and a great flow between one atmosphere to another: from dream-like Paris to real-life London, from a sober mood to a drugged and dazed one.

This is a work of someone who knows what they're doing, and how to do it. Though I would have told the story differently, that is a very personal and beautiful work.
