Nice film


The filming was very good, I really felt that I could feel Ann's emotions. A lot of that had to do with the excellent acting. It was also nice to see a lot of the actors, writers, director and producer. But hands down Juliette Binoche stole the show. Great actress, and an even better person. I would consider going to see this movie again. the main reason is that even though the topic is a serious one, and at times the movie does get a little dark and depressing the script allows for some lighter moments which makes it more manageable. I really laughed at times and at other times I felt very sad and bad for the characters. This movie gives you a different perspective on the worlds oldest profession. Initially I thought that this was a documentary, but I quickly realized that it wasn't, never the less it was a very good effort to capture something we don't see every day and as such have difficulty understanding.
