Immersive movie with the potential to change swiss society
Heavily shocking. The Audience in our movie stayed for minutes quiet after the ending. No one did even a move. I felt that what I just saw happens right outside my doorstep. And it does. In one of the most prosperous countries of the world. Swiss movies do normally not reach this level of perfection, there's always something awkward, mediocre actors, wooden dialogs, simple story's or whatnot. This movie does everything right. Luna Zimic Mijovic plays brilliantly as the 18 year old prostitute Mia who centers and links all the involved people in this story. The other actors do a solid job, but are pale in comparison. They become more contoured versus the end of the film,where they contribute to Mias downfall. The movie pulls you right in and never fails to keep you interested. Although the ending is predictable, it hits you like a train. Not for the feeble minded.
