Good choices, bad choices
6 May 2009 | by (Maastricht, The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

A guy and his woman. They both work in a brothel and are both working on their plan to escape that place for good. So far none of their plans have worked out and a new plan is devised. When the plan starts rolling the woman is anxious and afraid it will fail, but the man presses on. It all starts out really well, but it quickly turns sour. The rest of the film then is the more or less logical follow up of these events - with the one red line thought through it all being - getting even.

Films like this work out rather well when the characters are believable

  • and they are in this one. All the things that happen happen in a more


or less fitting way and as events turn darker and darker one cannot escape from both a grin and a grimace. It's fun and nasty at the same time and plays out as a somewhat predictable book, but in a good way. The main character plays out his role very well and most of the other characters play out very well too - there's only a few of them that fall out of style too much to be really fitting.

8 out of 10 choices backfiring
