A disturbing tale of tormented souls
7 September 2011 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

This film is about the life of a young village girl after moving to a big city. She meets new friends, who influences her to a life of spiralling depravity.

"Mall Girls" tells the miserable life of Ala, who has no friends after moving to a city. She desperately clings onto dubious peers who treats her like equal, doing things that she would normally not do. As a result, her life spirals out of control. The way she throws her life away is so sad. It is raw and heartbreaking. I find the portrayal of the three malls girls very three dimensional, especially Milena. Her reason for her tormented soul is shown through a heart to heart with Ala, which is emotionally gripping. The ending of the film is tragic but satisfying.

"Mall Girls" is an extraordinarily disturbing portrayal of troubled youths. Maybe it can serve as an alarm call as to what our world is doing to shape the young adults.
