Whores' glory


Austria, Germany
2011 / 119 min. / Thai-Bengali-Spanish version with English and Czech subtitles
Director: Michael Glawogger

This film is a triptych about prostitution: three locations, three languages, three religions. Paradise and the real world intertwine in prostitution, revealing an image of relationships between women and men. In Thailand, women wait behind shop windows, watching their own reflections in the glass. In Bangladesh, men enter the ghetto to fulfill their desires with the girls trapped in the crowded brothels. In Mexico, the women pray that they will not have to face this reality. This is a world where life's most private act becomes a commodity for sale, a commodity which is expensive and usually denounced. The reality of this world is surprising: beauty can be found within the cruelty and violence; the human mind can become a prison; and love blooms when least expected.
