Elles


Juliette Binoche plays a journalist doing an expose on teenage prostitution.  Through a series of interviews with a few young girls she gets a peek into the highs and lows of the world's oldest profession.  And it's equally titillating and disturbing.

This film succeeds most during the actual interviews, as the girls explain how they got started and how they really feel about what they do.  Unfortunately it suffers from not having a satisfying ending and possibly being too short (which I don't often say).  But the journey is definitely worth your time if you're into a sexy, yet dark and disturbing subtitled French film.  Pair it with 'Shame' for a debaucherous evening of sexual deviance.

Grade: B+
