crime indie from Finland
9 February 2019 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

Angela is part of the sexy dance troup Amazing Angels. Anna is in the small town Finland audience. Angela fights with a man in the back alley. Anna comes to her aid she goes home with her. Anna reveals that she's a previously unknown half-sister. Angela convinces Anna to join her on the road and then on stage filing her with images of a fantastical Miami nightclub. Angela's glamor wears thin after revealing her heavy debt. Anna suggests doing a bit of small time blackmailing.

This is a Finish indie crime drama about two half-sisters. The older sister has some good scenes. Despite some jagged storytelling, I was invested with the girls. I expected more dire situations which is suggested by the opening foreshadowing scene. In that way, the tension isn't quite there when the shocking descent is already revealed at the beginning. The movie does need a scary antagonist to be the crime lord. This is functional without being exceptional.
