Did You Know?


Ionut: [Reading reviews about Ana on the brothel's website] Silent, no feelings. I can't fuck a girl like that, I want my girls to be lively. No stars... No enthusiasm, laid there like a block of wood. One star... Pretty enough, but she looks like a drug addict and her breath smells.
Ana: My teeth are broken in pieces.
Ionut: One star.
Ana: Of course my breath smells.

Shocking, essential
23 December 2018 | by paul2001sw-1See all my reviews

You would have hoped it was not possible for a young woman to be kidnapped on the streets of London and forced into slavery under threat to her family; but sadly this does happen, and 'Doing Money' dramatises one such real life story. It's an utterly horrific tale; the film is direct and un-fancy, but the sense that what we see is something close to pure evil is never far away, and the psychological hold that the perpetrators have over their victims is convincingly portrayed. In this case, the the pimps went to jail; but even to someone like me who normally favours a liberal approach to sentencing, their three-year sentences seem wholly inadequate. In telling this story, 'Doing Money' is truly shocking, but and essential viewing.
