Goofs

When her passport is scanned at the airport, the text of her surname on the monitor readout is clearly a different font than the rest of the text on the monitor. This combined with the data/age discrepancy indicates they took a real readout of someone and used it with only changing the surname. 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.

Needs to be seen by every North American
29 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The statistics are shocking. The story is grim. And the biggest market for women and children sex slaves is the United States, much to our shame. Every person should see this movie. I hope ABC, CBS, or NBC will pick it up and show it so all can see it, not just ones who have cable. Keep in mind, the type of person who can afford to do this are primarily upper middle class professional men who have nefarious appetites to do the worst possible acts of mankind. The last few minutes are the most important of the entire film where Mira Sorvino's character states clearly the facts and why this is allowed to go on, because there is a market for it particularly here in the United States. God have mercy on humankind.
