movie good, but careless in it’s lead

17 November 2012 | by PeterMitchell-506-564364
– See all my reviews

This isn’t a bad film, by any standard, but it’s story is all so familiar. Only it has a few colorful touches to it that heightens it’s quality. In some ways it’s very much like that very sexy foreign film, Student Services. Our Vietnamese student here is forced to be an escort by the very nicest of pimps I’ve ever seen (the always wonderful Dave Field. His father has lost his job, so she has to be the bread winner. I was actually staggered to learn this actress was actually 33 when she made this, and this beautiful girl doesn’t look a day over twenty. Her performance is okay. I like her independent strong willed character. Nobody knows of her whoring, and when the truth comes out, later, it’s far worse than she expected for one her regulars, Peter Brien, an art fraudster, donning an American accent, that’s not perfect I must admit, even though his performance is solid, is murdered. He’s been hiding out in this apartment, overlooking Coogee. When this hits the papers, and she’s implicated with him, hostility comes at her from all fronts. Only her girl flat mate is supportive. This was a nice spin to the story. With this film, you do expect those stereotypical scenes. But above all, this isn’t a bad drama, with some quite dramatic. The only real disappointment was that we could of had a better performance from our lead. This film was actually that I expected to be. There are some kinky scenes, and in one funny scene, role playing, where our escort student and her hooker friend plays naughty schoolgirls, who can’t suppress their amusement. Ta ta.

movie good, but careless in it’s lead

17 November 2012 | by PeterMitchell-506-564364
– See all my reviews

This isn’t a bad film, by any standard, but it’s story is all so familiar. Only it has a few colorful touches to it that heightens it’s quality. In some ways it’s very much like that very sexy foreign film, Student Services. Our Vietnamese student here is forced to be an escort by the very nicest of pimps I’ve ever seen (the always wonderful Dave Field. His father has lost his job, so she has to be the bread winner. I was actually staggered to learn this actress was actually 33 when she made this, and this beautiful girl doesn’t look a day over twenty. Her performance is okay. I like her independent strong willed character. Nobody knows of her whoring, and when the truth comes out, later, it’s far worse than she expected for one her regulars, Peter Brien, an art fraudster, donning an American accent, that’s not perfect I must admit, even though his performance is solid, is murdered. He’s been hiding out in this apartment, overlooking Coogee. When this hits the papers, and she’s implicated with him, hostility comes at her from all fronts. Only her girl flat mate is supportive. This was a nice spin to the story. With this film, you do expect those stereotypical scenes. But above all, this isn’t a bad drama, with some quite dramatic. The only real disappointment was that we could of had a better performance from our lead. This film was actually that I expected to be. There are some kinky scenes, and in one funny scene, role playing, where our escort student and her hooker friend plays naughty schoolgirls, who can’t suppress their amusement. Ta ta.
