This film started off with a strong and exciting plot. The tension between Alexandra, her friends and Greg piqued my interest in each character's development, and the horrifically realistic scene with the pimps had me on edge and biting my nails. These were two things that were done especially well. But soon after that, the plot and character development began to degrade, as nothing but minute details occurred from then on - none of which had any substantial effects on Alexandra's character or emotion. Many pressing aspects of the plot were left unfinished in this movie - from the "tumor" idea to her relationship with her mother; to the whole deal with the pimps; to her ambitions after the exam. There is also no real resolution with her father, Vesna or her mother. I felt like the middle and end of this film turned into nothing more than unnecessary scenes of her riding the train back and forth between her home and the city. Not to mention, Alexandra has no true inner desire - she seeks neither love nor a deeper relationship with her family and friends. This idea of living in her nice apartment overlooking a highway being the sole reason she sells herself is rather unsettling, because honestly, she shows little attachment to the place except when she's showing it off to her friends. Perhaps a slightly more compelling ambition would have made me like her character better. Overall, like another reviewer said, this film is very nihilistic. The lack of emotion and character change (besides the balcony scene) leave for a bland, repetitive and static storyline. I feel like if the film had continued its momentum from the first section of the movie, it would have been a gripping and worthwhile film.
