Sweden, right in the depths of the 1970s. Iris and Sonja meet in a child care centre. There, they will seal a friendship pact marked by their hatred of the world and an incorruptible will to have fun –so far, nothing that sets the film apart from the classic rules of teenage angst. Until their paths meet Mrs. Glans (solid, terribly sexy Pernilla August), an elegant, liberal lady –a disturbing motherly figure that actually fronts a madam who throws parties and fresh meat to Stockholm’s high society. And that includes several social-democrat politicians in office. Based on a real case that inflamed Swedish politics in the 1970s, Call Girl has been defined by his director as “a classic political paranoia thriller”. However, we consider that definition to be insufficient for a first film such as this, since it bursts with equal amounts of talent and ambition, crossing genres with an almost suicidal composure, and delivers an unpleasant and cold portrait of that old Europe in which ABBA used to reign with a huge smile.
