Athen's dark underworld
24 November 2005 | by William_HuntSee all my reviews

Saw this movie at the int. film-festival of Gent. First of all : this movie is not for people who are easily chocked.

Through the eyes of two young prostitutes named Nadia & Martha (who start a lesbian relationship) we are sucked into a dark world of sex, drugs and violence... but not without content ! The film is about jealousy, the need for a home and family (especially in Martha's case) but above all how hard it is to get out this kind of underground scene. During their relationship Nadia turns out more and more ambitious and manipulative what finally lead to manipulation and even murder. The story started rather slow but the ended very strong.

The movie is best described as an urban fairytale of love and betrayal.
