Storyline

In 1996, in the Balkans, the population of a small town is slaughtered by a militia under the command of the inhuman Goran that abducts young girls for prostitution in a brothel owned by the cruel Viktor. The deaf Angel that witnessed the execution of her mother has a weird birth mark on the face and Viktor chooses her to housework; to put makeup and drug the girls for the clients; and cleaning them up after the brutal encounters. Angel also sneaks between the walls and ventilation ducts during the night. Angel befriends the girl Vanya that knows the language of the deaf. When Goran returns to the house with his men, Angel witnesses one of them raping and killing Vanya and she revenges her new friend killing the man. Now Goran and his men are hunting her down and she is trapped in the house. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Goofs

Later in the film, when Dimitri attempts to strangle Angel with his belt, she stabs him with a syringe loaded with heroin. He almost immediately reels back, loses coordination, and begins vomiting. The first issue with this is the method of injection. For heroin (or any drug) to have a near-immediate effect when injected, it must be intravenously (IV) injected, i.e., directly into a blood vein. With Angel jabbing the needle randomly into his leg like she does, the chances of hitting a vein directly or hitting and not going through are slim; more likely, the needle will pierce muscle tissue and be injected intramuscularly (IM), a method which will result in a much longer and milder onset of effects.

Also, assuming the dose Angel draws into the needle is comparable to what she normally gives the girls, it likely would not effect a large man the same way it would the smaller girls; specifically, Dimitri probably would not have experienced vomiting and coordination loss to the point where he couldn't stand straight. However, it might also be assumed that the girls have been there a while and have developed a tolerance for the drug, resulting in a larger dose being necessary. If this were the case, the dose might be enough to affect Dimitri in such a manner, assuming he doesn't use heroin on a regular basis himself. See more »

Confronting, graphic, and a great film.
25 August 2013 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

This film was brutal, graphic, emotional, and shocking in parts. The story was well written, and well acted. Sean Pertwee plays the part of a mean and horrible army officer, and I found myself hating him so much

  • I put that down to how well he played the part. The main character


("Angel" played by Rosie Day) was also played perfectly, as she doesn't speak a word in the whole movie, so the role relies on her acting ability, which she does so well. Some parts of this film are brutal and gory, but that makes this movie even better as it shows the emotion of the story line, which in my opinion is portrayed perfectly in these scenes. The first 15 minutes of the film set up the plot - and it is pretty confronting. I felt emotions that I haven't felt for a while from watching a film, and with every new scene I was heavily involved and interested to see how it turned out. I have to say this film is one of the best drama/horror movies I've seen in years. I would have to give it a solid 8.5 out of 10. Highly recommend it, just do not have children in the room when watching it.
