This might be hard to see. Not really because of the gore scenes, but because of the mood of total despair and humiliation without any hope.
Does these people exist? I don't know and hope they don't, but this is so well played, that you don't doubt they are among us. Goran Marjanovic and Sanna Bråding, the boy and girl performing porno video acts in a small apartment, are like cut out of life. They are absolutely documentary.
Despite their misery, everyone here has life and all kinds of feelings. There is a scene when the boy vomits into the girl's mouth, but everyone, including the porno director, comfort each other afterwards. They are victims, maybe victims of capitalism, and all they got are each other, with the porno director's angel son watching them and taking care of them, when there is an absolute need.
A religious Lukas Moodysson movie probably.
