Nina Ivanisin leads a double life as a college girl and a call girl, 1 June 2014
Author: msroz from United States

The genre of "A Call Girl" is realism or social realism, with just enough dramatic incidents in it to sustain one's interest. Being more like life than drama, it doesn't go out of its way to tell a cracking good story or resolve the dilemmas faced by its characters or to tie up the loose ends it leaves dangling. It's a slice of life, centering on a call girl played by Nina Ivanisin.

I found it a worthwhile movie. It's like a case study that illustrates quite a few themes, some that may be universal, and provides quite a few insights into the lives of the people in the story and people in general.

The characters are all painted quite well and seem realistic, and that's what makes the movie somewhat above average. For example, we get a good portrait of Nina's father. He had a rock group but it lost favor when punk rock came in. He's shown as getting his old group together and making a transition to this music, which symbolizes the American and westernizing influences. The story again and again goes back to those influences in the ways it shows Nina's aspirations, the city life of alienation, Nina's learning of English as a universal language, and details like Nina's dealings with the bank in getting a loan. Her whole choice of selling herself is to get ahead faster, where "ahead" means consuming more now and not waiting. If this takes borrowing to the limit, she does it, being inexperienced at what can happen by such decisions.

As the movie proceeds, we see the great sacrifice being a call girl involves. She leads a double life. She has to snub boy friend suitors. She neglects her studies. She constantly lies and makes up stories. There is one scene in which she manipulates a professor to get a passing grade. She cannot really communicate with her father because of her concealment. And her secrecy leads her to look down on ordinary people in a way. A contrast is drawn between living in a small community, where everyone wants to know everything about everyone else, with living in a city where one can maintain some anonymity. To her all of this is worth it, until things go against her, such as when two pimps intrude on her business. Then she sees life as nothing but "troubles".

I do not consider her character as nihilistic or as showing nihilism among the young. In fact, she's adopted westernizing values to the point of selling her body. It's one of the main themes of the movie that this choice has many drawbacks. Even the father's capitulation to punk rock or his version of it is not entirely a happy one.
