A picture of Justin Timberlake as in Subterranean Homesick Blues, with “Real Men Don’t Buy Girls” written on it: pop goes The World of prostitution. Meanwhile in Canada, Chester Brown edited last year a lucid chronicle about his life, proudly filled with whores and designed as a comic book. Glawogger also pursued in Austria its necessary opposite; a documentary that expands the director’s interest in powerful networks and the labor world he had already observed in his previous film Working Man’s Death. Now, he submerges himself into three different whorehouses (in Mexico, Bangkok and Bangladesh) in order to watch and listen to those who keep the world’s most ancient job. He finds out astonishing things such as that in Bangkok, girls come literally out of a fish tank as their numbers are called out; that there are Buddhists selling themselves on their own will; and even someone making a brutally honest description of how sex can (or cannot) be enjoyed. He sees other stories that are not so different from the prejudgments typically associated with this universe, from an almost cute escape by a repressed husband to the most dreadful and inacceptable women trade.
