A deadly sewer far away, from those innocent fields
25 November 2014 | by (adelaide, australia) – See all my reviews

A short film, again tackling child slavery, that can't brush off some amateur moments, one fault I really picked out, as in one the very young girl's change of attire. This one, has decided to go to the full distance, and it pays off. We really see what kind of perverts there are out there, who are ready to slap wads of money down, to have sex with children so young, it's heartbreaking. A little girl has been sold to this brothel. She can only dream of being reunited with her mother, where we see in some photographed shots. But will these dreams come true, or are they false, as to this little girls fate. Is she condemned to a life of prostitution. This is what you'll question, in the back of your mind, when seeing this. What I love about this little film, that I highly recommend, is that it does inspire you, to never give up. The madam here is a b..ch too, in one scene slapping the second youngest girl, who's preparing the younger one, for her first night with a guy, and this young bas..rd is merciless. These are people you'd pass on the street, and wouldn't think twice, about being depraved, hiding their shocking fetishes. This film is strongly confronting, but I say "Good on ya" to the filmmaker, for making a short, sharp and sweet, visually affecting and poetic movie. One of those short films you must see, and the children act great.
