Despite an oh-so-sober score by Belgian alt-rockers “Ghinzu” and an annoying habit of fading to black every five minutes, Director Sam Garbaski presents us with a simple hodgepodge of pathos, one-note comedy (how many times must we watch a prim and proper Maggie screw up her face as she grabs another willy?), and a tepid moral relativism that strives to make an ethical mountain out of a simple tug ’n pull. Everyone seems to be reading their lines off the back of a cereal box (or in the case of Kevin Bishop as Maggie's son, screaming them hysterically) and a ludicrous love interest between Maggie and her pimp-slash-manager Miki is probably the funniest schtick of all. A film that wants to wow us with an ultimate punchline or heartwarming revelation yet fails to deliver either one.

Unique screenplay starring Marianne Faithful.

The concept is really interesting - what would you do to save the life of someone you love? How far are you willing to go? The movie was alright, it had a lot of empty spaces, long glances, and the dialogue was natural in that it was believable but it didn't necessarily flow.
