Human Trafficking
24 April 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

At last film makers are uncovering the despicable trade of human trafficking. In this film a girl is smuggled to America, she is faceless, lost and unprotected. It is the same theme as the excellent films TAKEN which was set in France, and FREIGHT which was set in the UK. This happens, that is what makes these films uncomfortable to watch. They are the area of life that politicians can gain nothing from tackling, but these great film makers do. Well done. The horror the girl feels is very real which makes this different from Taken. In Taken we follow Liam Neeson's character as a hero, here we see the pain of the girl as we do in the UK film Freight. Somehow that perspective is so much more powerful, and it hurts. You feel the girls pain.
