It helps to know a little background before viewing...

This is based on hundreds of real stories of what happening to the east European girls and women who seek better life or to make money to support their families who wait for them in their home countries. Many are missing as they are treated as sex slaves and then killed. Or are sold to be slaves for families in rural areas of Turkey, Bosnia, Albania etc.
If one doesn't know about this part of civilized Western Europe it doesn't mean the story lacks credibility.

This is a film of suspense and mystery, with the sex trade as the backdrop. Acting was not bad. But somehow the story lacks credibility. I expected more from the director who also did Cinema Paradiso.

Brilliant Italian movie that kept me guessing until the end. Nude scenes and violence make it suitable for a discerning audience. I watched it twice and I enjoyed some subtle scenes which escaped me first time around.
