5.0 out of 5 stars Sadly, this really happens December 13, 2013
By AES
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Great movie. It scared me because sex-trafficking is a very real problem in Eastern Europe, as well as other countries. According to U.S. estimates, 4 million people find themselves modern day slaves each year--especially in the post-Soviet war torn Balkans. People don't like to think about this sort of thing, so it's often presented in a way that makes it forgettable. This movie is different in that it dares to go into real life human horrors. Face your fears of what humanity can be like and watch it.

I had no previous knowledge of this film before watching it, so I was not prepared at how incredibly visceral the movie ultimately was. I have seen many movies on the horrors of brothels and sex slaves, but I was taken aback at how terrifying some of these places could be. Whomever was responsible for such a convincing cast and location, as well as special effects that actually made me cringe, such be commended. This film will leave you shaken, disturbed, and wanting to know more about what girls like this have gone through. It makes for great entertainment, but also leaves you thinking about the film for days after you have watched it.

this actually turned out to be a good movie, its about human trafficking in war time, and other then that I wont give any spoilers, but I will say I sat through it and found it to be worth the rental, Rosie Day did an amazing job playing Angel.

3.0 out of 5 stars 3.25 Stars: Surprsingly good revenge/thriller movie March 8, 2014
Format:DVD
I hadn't heard of this film until recently. I read others commenting on the film's violence and brutality, so I was immediately interested. I can say that I was definitely surprised on how good this movie actually was, especially since it is a fairly unknown, lower budget production. The plot is pretty simple. An enslaved deaf and mute girl, called Angel, is given the role of "caretaker" to a house full of sex slaves, who are prostituted to the military. She befriends one of the girls there, which eventually leads to her revenge and escape from her "employers". I will admit, the first half or so of the film, can be a little slow. And the whole film is dark and bleak from start to finish. The last 30 minutes or so, the film picks up the pace. And when the film picks its moments to be brutal, it is just that, brutal. The special effects were great, which was a big surprise to me. The ending I thought was just so-so. I thought it was just a little too ironic how unlucky the main protagonist was, in that that she seems to running into 'bad' people that were somehow connected to the very same people she was trying to get away from. But even with that being said, I was still impressed with this one overall. The acting, production, and story (though simple) were all good. But the violence/special effects were really the strong point and the most effective part of the film to me. I recommend this one if you're interested in revenge-type of films. It's not on the same level of brutality or violence as a "I Spit on Your Grave", but it does pack a bit of a punch.

4.0 out of 5 stars LISTS, VIKTOR, LISTS. September 12, 2013
Format:Blu-ray
The aftermath of an Eastern European war is that young girls are forced into prostitution. Angel (Rosie Day) is a young mute girl who is taken to such a place. Viktor (Kevin Howarth) who runs the place has taken a liking toward her and has her in charge of shooting up the other girls. She befriends one of the girls who knows sign language.

The soldiers who come there are mean and cruel. Angel, makes Fiona Apple look obese, as she crawls through air vents like my cats do when I yell at them for changing the channel. The first half of the film is slow establishing the characters and scenario.

This is not the exploitation film one expects from the cover and title. I enjoyed the dark irony of the ending which was worth the wait.

Worth a view if you liked "The Whistleblower".

Parental Guide: F-bomb, rape, male rear nudity. No female nudity.

4.0 out of 5 stars entertaining! January 5, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Now, I read another review that said," very disturbing" that is very much the truth. This movie highlights the error of high trafficking of young girls; the brutal beating, rape, exploitation and killing. The movie had some very good actors and the story is believable. I would watch this movie again . The main character did a wonderful job playing the deaf girl; I might mention.

5.0 out of 5 stars True Horror January 21, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Most of us, if not all, are aware of the women forced into prostitution and used in violent ways we can't even imagine. This movie had me in tears, and even fury and the savage way they were used for some beast's sexual desires. At more than one point of the film, I was going to stop the movie and delete it, but I kept on, until the end that gave me some hope for just one young woman. This type of savagery may continue forever. It is prevalent in many countries, and I suppose the authorities ignore most of it. Be warned that this movie is incredibly savage, and yet, so important

Very sad and difficult to watch at times, but a good movie. Didn't care for the ending, but to each his own. Worth a watch for sure.
