2001 M Contains Violence & Sex Scenes.

Helene and Paul, a bourgeois couple, witness the assault of a young prostitute, Malika, by a gang of pimps. Paul refuses to get involved but Helene later finds Malika and helps her to hide and regain her health. Together they piece together Malika's past and her devious schemes to escape the life she has fallen into. The two then plan and carry out an amusing series of deceptions to save Malika's younger sister from the same fate and enact poetic justice on both the gang and Helene's apathetic husband Paul.Coline Serreau's ('La Crise' and 'Romuald et Juliette') tale of female solidarity is both a comic satire on the superficiality of French bourgeois like and an angry condemnation of the exploitation and oppression of immigrant women.

    Another brilliant French drama. with excellent acting by all. The twists and turns in the plot kept you glued to your seat and what a comeuppance at the end. Women of the world unite!

    Really enjoyed this movie. The French are able to mix comedy with some harrowing realism. Great characters, and well acted.

    Entertaining although some of the acting was overdone. Nice plot, with quite a few twists and turns. Would recommend to someone not wanting an award winning film but good fun.

    Persevere with odd music and initially confusing characters...it gets better and by the end you feel you have learnt and achieved something!!! I may just buy this film for its unique ability to confuse, bore and enthrall simultaneously.

    3.5 by Kate Bush

    A black comedy that blends violence, drugs, crime, sexism, religion and prostitution. It is an unsual mix of genres but it works.

    An enjoyable, fast paced French crime thriller/comedy melodrama that doesn't demand much from it's audience. It has all the makings of a great film with good cinematography and an excellent cast, but... Read more

    A really fast moving movie with great stories. I love movies like this with characters from different walks of life that somehow blend together. Brilliant.
