Summary: I watched the film to the end and probably because Juliette Binoche is a good actress and the 2 girls were engaging. The story is slight and really the movie is probably soft porn without genitalia on view. I do not watch pornography and so I can only imagine that this film falls into this category.
Summary: If it weren't for Juliette Binoche this would have passed by almost unnoticed. She gives it a lot of depth and treats the two women without being prejudice towards them. The only criticism is the girls appear to enjoy what they do and gives the profession an attractive edge which is misleading.
Summary: A fascinating subject treated with care. Perhaps revealing of the human character. Quite beautifully shot but somewhat slow at times. A bit too 'gritty' in places for me - do some men really behave like that?
Summary: Anais Demoustier is a real find and Binoche acts fabulously well - against type, as the director says, there is nothing sweet in this performance - in a mature exploration of sexuality - even if its depiction of prostitution is the French equivalent of Pretty Woman's depth of insight. Not perfect, but the most realistic depiction of sex scenes I've probably seen on celluloid; get your partner this and a copy of The Women's Room by Marilyn French and discuss.
Summary: Quietly absorbing film which draws you in as you get to know the three women. An especially appealing performance from Anais Demoustier as one of the girls drifting into prostitution. Don't watch this film if you're wanting crash-bang-wallop action. Do watch it if you enjoy the subtle nuances and understated acting of French film dramas.
Summary: I found this an engaging if at times odd film but with interesting characters beautifully acted. If you can't cope with the trauma of subtitles then anything moreintellectually challenging than X Factor will be lost on you - everyone else this is not perfect but a good watch and the lovely Anais Demoustier character is brilliantly done.
