Trivia

Though the full credit of French version went to a Paris dubbing studio, most of the French-Canadian actors did made their dubbing in a Montreal studio, then sent to France for final post-synchronization. The majority of English-speaking roles were dubbed by French actors. See more »

Goofs

When Helena and Kate were speaking on the roof of a high-rise building, you can clearly see a flash of the Canadian flag on a building nearby, even though this film was supposed to be set in New York. See more »

Quotes

Andrei: [preparing to rape Helena] In case you ever think of running away? Don't be stupid. Just think of your little daughter. She's safe, as long as you behave.

A hard to watch, non-exploitive look at an international shame
26 October 2005 | by (Bothell, WA, USA) – See all my reviews

I found the movie very compelling as it followed several different story lines, exposing many different facets to the sex trafficking industry. The fact that all these story lines were linked to one king pin running an international organization was pure Hollywood, but it allowed for drama and suspense as he was tracked by the feds. The wrap up and conclusion was also too easy, but again the mission of this film was to educate and spotlight abuse in an entertaining forum. This movie delivered.

On top of this, I especially appreciated the way the graphic scenes were composed. It was hard to watch, ugly, and grotesque. It wasn't played for sex appeal, or lurid fascination. It was ugly. Completely appropriate to the reality of the women, children, and victims of this abuse.
