'Carmen's Kiss' attempts to grasp the bigger picture problem of sex trafficking, it's a decent enough attempt but just falls short of being interesting enough to work as a whole piece.
Joe played by Hugo Spear is an ex cop desperately in love with Carmen. Obsessionally in love, he lost his job because of her, descending down a spiralling staircase into utter despondency. The plot weaves slowly and thoughtfully but all too often the mix becomes uninteresting and you are left waiting for something to happen.
It's not degradingly bad, the actors go through the motions with ease laced with some nice snapshots of a seedier side of London underworld but you are left thinking it could have been so much better. The slow pace becomes off putting at times.
Nice to see such a serious problem tackled on the big screen but was ultimately disappointed with the outcome.
