An authentic portrait of three women who work to make ends meet

WORKING GIRLS isn't a film about prostitutes, it is a film about women who work, heroines of the real world who bring food on the table for their families by crossing the French / Belgian border everyday together to work in a brothel. It is a compelling and moving story and the film successfully conveys the special bond between the three main characters who share a secret life.

An engaging and layered insight to three women making a living

I wasn't sure what to expect going into this film - I hadn't actually read up on it beforehand, and only knew it was an Oscar contender. After having seen it, I'm very happy I did, and recommend it to others. The acting was utterly superb, from all three stars. The film has a way of introducing and going into each character that I feel worked very well. We basically get the perspective of each character, and any characters we may not initially feel so connected to are quickly given layers as their life is revealed, so that we strongly empathize with them. These characters and their situation are extremely complex, and yet no matter what is done, we end up completely understanding where they are coming from. It's very easy to write certain characters as stereotypes, but nearly everyone in this film is given sufficient depth, which keeps the audience engaged and interested the entire film. The pacing was excellent, all the way through, and I have to really commend the writer for how well-written each scene was. The direction, as well, felt very natural, and fluid, keeping strongly with the tone of the film. All around, I very much recommend this film, and am very happy to see this subject matter be handled so well and compassionately.

A chronicle of struggling women

'Filles de Joie' is Belgium's submission for the foreign language Oscar. This news came as a surprise for many moviegoers, because the release went largely unnoticed. In the northern part of the country the film didn't even make it to the cinemas. It's not hard to see why. This is a decent film, but nothing special. It certainly is no Oscar material. The film chronicles the lives of three sex workers. Why they have chosen this line of work remains unclear, but each of them has issues in their personal lives. Axelle has to cope with three small children and an agressive ex-husband. Conso dreams of a future as a wife and mother, but is shattered when she learns her lover is married and celebrating the birth of his baby. Dominique is happily married, but lives in fear that her teenage daughter will also be lured by the easy money of the sex business. The film starts with a nice scene: during a thunderstorm the three women bury a dead body, wrapped in plastic. But the effect of this dramatic start is wasted: the rest of the story seems to ignore the murder and only at the very end we learn the identity of the victim. It is as if the murder has been an afterthought, to add some spice to the story. The film is by no means a murder mystery. It is a real life portrait of three struggling women. There's nothing wrong with that, but this film lacks the intensity needed to really impress.
