So, what makes a brothel? While the cultures of those three countries differ, to me the answer is poverty. In this world you're among the few who don't have to compromise to survive or the many that do. WHORES' GLORY does not judge its subjects, instead presenting them doing what they can to stay alive and, if anything, telling the viewer we should show those women the respect they deserve.
See WHORES' GLORY.
The film is a "triptych" because it examines prostitution in three diferent countries, Thailand, Bangladesh, and Mexico, each of which has its own political structure, economics, language, and dominant religion. The movie suggests that prostitution is closely tied to the mores of the country in which it occurs while it still fulfuills what appears to be a universal human need, both for the women and for their clients. The word "triptich" also has a religious connotation for Glawogger as he tries to treat his subjects with respect. In a similar way, the title "Whores' Glory" can be taken ironically. But Glawogger also wants to take "glory" seriously as "a gesture of respect for the working girls of the world." The women in the film struggle to maintain a degree of distance, independence, and self-respect.
The film does not use professional actors. Glawogger worked painstakingly in his three locations to get the consent of the women and their clients to appear in the film. The scenes are as candid as can be expected under the circumstances.Read more ›
To watch these male customers treat mostly young women as slaves, as sub-humans makes me wonder how these women manage to avoid developing a deep dislike for men in general.
I would highly recommend this movie as a wake-up call for men and women.
Next is in India where a female pimp explains how she handles the girls. These seem young. The girls talk about their existence and it is shown in painful detail. One gal appears to be sold from one madam to another.
The final stop is Mexico where there is an area called The Zone which appears to be a compound. Guys are interviewed as they enter and they share what they intend to do to/with the females. More prayer. What appears to be an actual transaction is shown along with some other bare skin. Insightful and heartbreaking. Also see Nevada Rose.

Yikes. I made it through about half an hour of this sham "documentary." I might have kept watching for the laughs, but the music was so God-awful I just had to quit. Read morePublished 8 months ago by Steve Rosse
Glawogger passes no judgment upon the prostitutes whose business his documentary describes, but neither does he pass any judgment upon the society that drives so many unfortunates... Read morePublished 9 months ago by Michael B. Green

Sex is a poor man's last refuge if he can afford it. Brothel is the the best solution for male to release sex energies. Otherwise they end up strapping explosives to their chests. Read morePublished on July 6, 2013 by Amazon Customer
