I'm hesitant to post my thoughts on this film because it's practically impossible to come by. My copy is a screener provided when I was helping with the Sexy International Film Festival. I just dug it out and thought I've revisit it. It takes place in 1905 and is set in an Austrian brothel. At first it seems like it's going to be a smutty softcore kind of porno but it soon turns into a really powerful drama about a prostitute who succumbs to syphilis and befriends a troubled young girl who is also infected. The film gives what I imagine is an honest and fairly accurate portrayal of the sex trade in those times and its filmed really cleverly. The budget would have been minuscule and yet the shots are so well framed and the costumes seem authentic and it manages to hold up as a film worthy of any world arthouse cinema. The dvd may be available from European online retailers but I can't imagine it will be easy to find. Good luck if you try. It's worth it!
