Interviews
13 May 2006 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

Maria Lidon is given credit for directing this documentary. It's funny because in the credits someone by the name of Luna appears to be its director, and frankly, we were under the impression that Spanish director, Bigas Luna, a man that loves to shock his audience, was the actual man directing.

What makes a woman turn into prostitution? The obvious answers would be poverty, desperation, sexual abuse, and having been deceived. But the writers of the documentary take the approach to the way some of these women have ended working in the world's oldest profession because the allure of the money that can be made, or just because they honestly like the idea of selling sex for a living. There are only a couple of males that talk frankly about the way they sell their bodies.

"The Life" might be deceiving for the casual viewer since in the credits we see some familiar names like Daryl Hannah, Denise Richards and Joaquim de Almeida, but their presence in the film is merely decorative. After seeing and listening to all the women interviewed speak openly about how they view their chosen 'career', these actors seem to be in the wrong picture.

Other than being curious about what "The Life" is about, nothing new is learned from the people being interviewed.
