Product Description

Having grown up in small-town Slovenia, 23-year-old Alexandra embraces the excitement and anonymity of big city life when she moves to the capital. She styles herself as a call girl, planning to take advantage of everything the city has to offer. But her isolated existence English studies and mortgage payments by day, call girl lifestyle by night is shattered when one of her clients, a visiting politician, dies of a heart attack on her watch. Alexandra must suddenly confront fear, guilt, and desperation as she finds herself pursued by a band of local pimps, as well as the cops, hot on her trail. The old village life she had escaped from might now become her only refuge.

Review

Features the breathtaking debut of new talent Nina Ivanisin in the title role. An actress to keep an eye on. --Basil Tsiokos, indieWIRE

Haunting, beautifully crafted and powerfully acted [A] remarkable film. --Greg Klymkiw, Daily Film Dose

Nina Ivanisins performance as the title character [is] one of the most coolly calculating anti-heroines to grace the silver screen. --Alissa Simon, Variety

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent film April 17, 2010
Format:DVD
I saw "Slovenian Girl" (as this film was titled at the time) in January of 2010 at the Palm Springs International Film Festival. It is spot-on about post-Soviet life in Eastern Europe, where the vacuum created when the Soviet lifestyle was replaced by capitalism is filled by amoral activity aimed at material gain at any cost. The Slovenian actress in the title role is amazing -- able to show her duplicity and manipulating ways merely by a look in her eyes. The supporting cast is equally good. Excellent all 'round!

4.0 out of 5 stars Give Her a Call October 29, 2010
By Lei
Format:DVD
This is a very good film that presents the hardships and difficulties in being a call girl. Alexandra (Nina Ivanisin) is a twenty-three years old college student who lives with her father. She attends college in the capital of Slovenia. She is scarce on money. Alexandra wants to have a nice flat, but it is too expensive to keep. She falls further and further behind on payments. No matter how many clients she has, it is not enough to keep up with the payments. Her academics suffer as well. She becomes desperate to the point here she has to manipulate a professor to give her a passing grade for an exam. She lies to everyone: her clients, her professors, the bank teller, her friends, and her father. I feel for her poor father. He distracts himself from the dullness of his life by trying to start up his old band. His wife, Alexandra's mother, left him for a man she had an affair with. All the actors were all right. Her father's friends were quite stupid and goofy. Alexandra looks quite homely though throughout the whole film. As if she needed a good night's sleep, or a shower. She was very defiant and sort of drained. Rather lifeless must say, but I will blame that on all the disgusting men she had to work with. She sure smokes up a chimney. All in all, the film was a good simple portrayal of the classic call girl profession, aka prostitute. I feel bad for these girls who choose this profession to compensate them-selves for money.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting if not very emotionally involving March 27, 2011
Format:DVD
A 23 year old Slovenian girl, originally from a small town there but now studying at the university in the capital of Ljubljana, supplements her life as a student with stints as a prostitute (to show how distasteful her job is, the filmmakers have all her clients to be fat and/or old). One of them is a famous politician, and when he dies of a heart attack when he was in a hotel room with her, she flees not before telling the police. She is soon searched by the authorities and by the news media as the mysterious Slovenian Girl. She is also on the run from two sleazy, violent pimps, who want her to work for them instead of independently. A former boyfriend is stalking her also, and her mother back in her hometown doesn't look too happy when she shows up for a visit. Only her rock musician father and a female friend (who are obviously ignorant of her side job) are there supporting her. And all of the time she's having money problems, including coming with money to pay for a loan she incurred in to buy an apartment.

To me the movie works best as a showcase of the general aimlessness of many young people today, especially in the developed world. Without any spiritual or political belief, many young people today seem to fall into nihilism. The main actress is pretty, but it seems to me to be way too surly to be a prostitute. Shouldn't she at least feign she is a sweet girl in front of her clients (this is not a criticism of her acting, she clearly has been told to play her that way by the filmmakers). Alas, this surliness of her makes the audience not care too much of what happens to her. Still, this is an interesting, well made film, though not very emotionally involving.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very much a simply ok movie. September 7, 2010
Format:DVD
(special thanks to Film Movement for providing me with a screener!)

Prostitution is often described as the world's oldest profession. At various points in history its been banned, praised and made into a form of worship. These days it simply is what it is, and for at least some people, it's a viable way to make money.

One of those people is featured in this latest release from Film Movement. The film is a drama about a young woman, Alexandra (Nina Ivanisin), who has escaped small town life and is now a student living in Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia. She wants to have a certain kind of lifestyle and that lifestyle requires more money than a student might normally have. So like many attractive people before her, she figures that she might as well start selling sex to get the life she wants.

At first things seem to be going quite well for her, and she's soon raking in enough money to buy a small condo. But right at the beginning of the film things take a dark turn as a German member of the European Parliament, and would-be customer, dies of a heart attack. She's got the presence of mind to call for medical help and then scoots out of the hotel. Soon the hunt is on for her, which doesn't stop her from continuing to work, something which eventually captures the eyes of a couple local pimps. Things go downhill from there.

I liked this movie, but didn't love it. It wasn't anything terribly spectacular. The main character isn't that sympathetic or as interesting as the story wants you to think she is, though her father, a former rock musician trying to get back into the game was quite interesting. I'd actually rather like to see a movie just about him, since I think that could be really fascinating.
