User Reviews

In a perfect world....

In a perfect world great TV would be seen by the many based purely on merit. But unfortunately like the lives of the characters in this TV show, life isn't always fair. Instead the noisy Michael Bay types get the notice. But the viewer always has a choice, for instance they can watch another Transformers of the Caribbean 'Taken' sequel, or they can watch something quite special like this or its equally excellent second series.

You may have to BitTorrent these two TV series to get to see them, but its worth it. Matrioshki a.k.a. Matroesjka's is gripping fiction offering a privileged insight into those sucked into the world of trafficking. Its not just about the lives of the trafficked women either, although their stunning performances are only matched by their looks.

Its also a masterpiece of insight into the middle-men, patsies, and henchmen who conspire to make trafficking possible. You'll get to meet unforgettable and fascinating anti-heroes who render the 'bad-guys' of the 'Taken' films irrelevant! Hollywood often breaks the world down into pure good and evil. But life is so much more complex. Thankfully though, TV is still alive and well. The Sopranos was proof of that!
