Trivia

Director Amos Gitai said in an interview that he convinced the cast and crew to literally camp out in the desert where the opening sequences were shot. This began because he was tired of the long daily commute from the location to Tel Aviv, but he believes that the fact that most of them agreed to join him, living in tents without running water for days, added to the gritty realism of these scenes, because the actresses were just as unwashed and uncomfortable as their characters.

Prostitution and women slavery
20 March 2021 | by guisreisSee all my reviews

Very strong, violent and depressing well made movie on vicious business of prostitution and slavery. Simple and very tough. Not charming. The bad People who do that with other people come from everywhere. One of the best films from Israeli diretor Amos Gitai.
