Pure exercise of sadism! I guess it resumes this film very well, because it's all about it: gratuitous torture!
We cannot say it doesn't have a plot, because in fact it has, very short and almost pointless, but it all starts when a prostitute who has a miserable life of drugs, rude sex and solitude, meets a trucker and thinks he will be just another customer Well, she's wrong! In fact she's very wrong, as her life will become a living hell of torture for endless days
The plot can be just resumed to that because all the rest is just pure sadism mixed with a hallucinating cinematography and creepy soundtrack!
In fact, the black and white and artsy cinematography, the flashing scenes, some camera shots and the incredible performance from both main actors, together with the disturbing music and sounds, was what I really appreciated in this film! I mean, I did enjoy the aesthetics and the artistic concept of this movie, but I couldn't appreciate the festival of torture and sadism it also is. Mostly because we can't find any reason or explanation to it. There's no evident motive, so it turns into an irrational game of torture for too much long to the girl and to the viewer!
I score it 6/10 for the artistic concept but I can't score it higher because of the exaggerated and gratuitous sadism, which in the end becomes just pointless!
