Michael

Though 48 minutes long, De Hoer en het Mesje packs more dramatic and emotional weight than many a feature. Elena (Tanja Otolski) is a Ukrainian prostitute held illegally in Amsterdam, whose pimp Viktor (Juda Goslinga) causes humiliation and misery to her and fellow prostitutes in his ruthless pursuit of capital. When one of the other prostitutes is sold off as a sex slave, leaving behind her young daughter, Elena takes charge of the tot. Their escape is short-lived, but Elena's determination remains undimmed... As the infant, Golda de Leon is incredible; Otolski too holds a complex and compelling screen presence, even (and especially) in the many difficult-to-watch scenes of physical and sexual abuse.
