Inside Prostitution
17 January 2011 | by (StarBox) – See all my reviews

A film with the title of, A Call Girl, might imply a plentiful of sex and erotic scenarios, but in the case of this film, we go beyond the surface and look into the struggle of a prostitutes life. The prostitute is a young college student by the name of Sasha, a dark haired, pale faced Slovenian girl who has hopes of conquering the world. Sasha is on path to accomplish all of her hopes and dreams when suddenly one of her clients dies unexpectedly. Also, eviction from her high end flat that she can't afford impends.

Nina Ivanisin as Sasha, is remarkable as the guarded yet determined Sasha. Her mysterious and depressive-like state is offset by her astounding beauty and dark features. Nina and the rest of the cast provide much realism that enhances the film and make it seem believable. Despite A Call Girl being a slow burner film, the struggles of Sasha's lifestyle in dealing with nasty clients, over bearing pimps who threaten her life, to a murder in which she is attached to, all combine for a well paced story with emotional acting and dramatic scenarios that tug at the heart of the viewer. While there appropriate sex scenes, for the most part the focus is not at all on sex, but rather Sasha and her messy situation.

Evident from the first scene of the film, A Call Girl bounces back and forth between easy to read subtitles of Slovenian and plain old English. Sasha is learning English just as the film itself seems to be learning English. Set in a larger European city that has a stone faced tone, the film is given character by the balance of earth tones, Sasha's dark features and dark profession. (Is there meaning to moving to a larger city and learning the English language, as if it's a pathway to a better life? Or is it and overbearing lifestyle waiting to send you back home?) Sasha must live as a prostitute in order to survive while attending college, but ultimately she is left struggling and hurting from a world collapsing around her. The film accurately portrays the differences between big city and small town life, in addition to the many challenges and decisions a young adult faces in taking on the real world.

Though there are several scenarios in the film, we don't have a single plot, nor a straight forward conclusion. We're given a glimpse into the Slovenian Girl's struggles, and left uncertain but with a slight amount of hope. A Call Girl is a well performed film that puts the viewer into the life of a struggling college student living a double life. I highly recommend this "art house", independent foreign film if you're looking for a dramatic film with erotic undertones and a break from the mainstream.
