Intense and very relevant drama
6 May 2010 | by (Copenhagen, Denmark) – See all my reviews

This is a story about a German/Danish man, Chris (Jens Albinus, Idioterne/Dancer in the Dark), who has made it his mission to liberate young Thai girls from the prostitution in their homeland, and give them new foster-parents in the west. Along with his pal Holger (Jürgen Vogel, Die Welle), he buys out the young girl Jenjira (Duyen Pham), and tries to find her an adoptive family in Germany. But something goes wrong, and while he tries to find a new home for her, they both fall in love. Furthermore, Chris also has to keep the evil men from Thailand from reclaiming their "rights" to Jenjira, which leads to a few dramatic confrontations. Chris has a hard time handling this, and tries to kill himself by crashing his car into a moving truck.

When this fails, however, he is brought into police custody and is interrogated by Maggie (Corinna Harfouch, Der Untergang), who has her own problems, dealing with alcohol and depression. They seem to be kindred spirits, and after a while have a deep bond of sympathy between them, and both seek to help Jenjira getting a new life outside of child-prostitution.

Overall, this is a very good movie, with heartfelt performances by the actors involved in the project, that brings up many issues, ranging from child-prostitution over father/son-problems (including a great cameo by Danish star Jesper Christensen as Chris' father), to alcohol-abuse, child neglect, general recklessness, having a lack of conscience, impossible love, and many other relevant issues in our society today. I think this is an excellent film, that seamlessly ties all these loose ends together, and creates a great viewing experience.
