In the back streets of a tourist town in present-day Southeast Asia, we find a filthy cinder block room; a bed with soiled sheets; a little girl waits for the next man. Alex (Dermot Mulroney), a human trafficking investigator, plays the role of her next customer as he negotiates with the pimp for the use of the child. Claire (Mira Sorvino), Alex's wife, is caught up in the flow of her new life in Southeast Asia and her role as a volunteer in an aftercare shelter for rescued girls where lives of local neighborhood girl's freedoms and dignity are threatened. Parallel story lines intertwine and unfold twists against the backdrop of the dangerous human trafficking world, in a story of struggle, life, hope and redemption in the "TRADE of INNOCENTS."

Go Watching Another smiler themed film
15 November 2013 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

Trafficking is a severe theme that has inspired a lot of good movies. This is, I'm afraid not one of them. Both Mulroney and Sorvino are able to deliver great acting, but here they struggle a bit, as many before them have done in films which doesn't have a well written script. This film struggles with the script, as quite naive, and then it's also difficult to give good instructions by a director. Then if the director isn't top notch, then there's lots of possibilities of a film going stale.

The premise of this is OK, but this film has several problems. A bad script, some bad acting, the switching of languages, well I guess that's enough, but the director isn't the best either. The things are told in a bad narrative way, and to obvious storytelling, with too many strange coincidences. The filming techniques are far from the best, as well, though not the worst here though. Therefore this goes wrong.

We meet a married couple working in Kambodia. He is working with revealing sex trade with Kambodian children. Having lost their own daughters years ago, makes this even harder for the couple.

Go watch the similarly themes great films "Trade", "Human trafficking", "Lilja 4-ever" or "Crossing over" instead. They are all recommended on this subject. Unlike this film, they will grab your heart, and learn just as much as this is trying to do.

The best about this film, is they you might learn something of what this trade is all about. Though I'm afraid you might be bored while watching. Too bad, since I can see many here tried their best.
