66 – Elles (2012)


Director: Malgorzata Szumowska Starring: Juliette Binoche, Anaïs Demoustier, Joanna Kulig Running time: 99 mins

Subject: As research, journalist and family woman, Anne (Binoche) meets two university students who support themselves through prostitution. The backstories and job stories of these girls are revealed, titilating Anne into a sexual awakening. Elles is strikingly ambiguous in its comment on the sex trade and contains a memorable dinner scene that suggests we are all responsible for its existence. Loads of t&a.

Like: The Happy Hooker[s]… go[es] to Paris

Core truth: Simple moral judgements have no place.
