I saw this movie at the Seoul International Women's Film Festival April 11. I felt it could've been so much more but the sets and scenes were so closed, as in it didn't really show me much about Denmark.
Having said that, I think it was a realistic look into the prostitution scene in Denmark, whose men seem to have a fetish for African women. I've seen CNN reports on the plight of Nigerian women in Denmark, and this movie was a peek into their world.
I don't regret watching it but I'm not exactly sure I'd recommend it, either. The ending also left me hanging as well but oh well, it was the director's vision.
