Trama del film:

Maggie, a 50-year-old widow, desperately needs some money to pay for a medical treatment for her ill grandson. After one attempt at trying to find a job, Maggie finds herself roaming the streets of London Soho. Her eye is caught by a small poster in the window of a 'shop' called "Sexy World" which reads: "Hostess wanted". Too desperate and lost to realize what she does she enters. Micky, the owner, is embarrassed at first, but intrigued by Maggie, he decides to have fun and offers her the job. Maggie courageously gets to know her first anonymous customers, eventually using Irina Palm as her stage name. Maggie, who applies herself in order to keep her job, fascinates Mickey.

    When I saw the trailers it looked like a European film and settings,
    but luckily this movie was in English directed by a German born Belgium
    director Sam Garbarski.

    The story is in a small village near London about a widowed
    grand-mother Maggie (Marianne Faithful), whose grand son has to undergo
    treatment in Australia. She has a son Tom (Kevin Bishop) and daughter
    in law Sarah (Siobhan Hewlett) who can not earn that much to afford the
    trip to Australia. Maggie loves the grandson a lot but does not have
    any skills to do work – she has never worked in her entire life. After
    being rejected at many places, in search of work she lands up in the
    Soho area (red light district of London) in Mikky's (Miki Manojlovic)
    sex club / restaurant. Very shy and hesitant – she agrees to the work
    of masturbating men for a decent sum of Pounds 900 per week. Within no
    time she becomes the famous Irina Palm (pseudo name) for her skills.
    Maggie finds a new confidence and self-independence through this new
    role – which she never thought would become her respected profession.
    She borrows money from Miki and gives to her son, who becomes
    suspicious and when he follows her and knows about her new profession
    and is deeply hurt. He wants her to take the money back and leave the
    dirty profession.

    The movie is about the journey through the mind of Maggie. Her
    hesitations, her doubts, her fears, her joy, her confidence, her love,
    and her grandiose – everything is perfect.

    Marianne Faithful – who started her career as a singer, and later got
    involved in film acting – looks beautiful (just google her name and see
    how beautiful she was in her young days) and has acted honorably in
    portraying the character of Maggie to its core. She speaks more in her
    silences, stares and glances than with words. She was the perfect
    casting by the Director Sam. A special mention of veteran actor Miki
    Manojlovic – who has played the dark character of Mikky with so much
    punch and humanness that it is remarkable and not easy to forget. Both
    Marianne and Miki sparkles the screen with their historic.

    A very well directed film by Sam – this is just his fifth directional
    project. He has also co-written the script with Philip Blasband.
    Cinematography by Christophe Beacarne is wonderful in capturing the
    life of a small British village to the dark and dingy streets and
    hotels of Soho –especially the beginning shot of the village through
    bird's view and hand held shots of dark back alleys of Soho.

    At one point in the movie when Maggie is forced by her son to leave the
    work, I was longing for Marianne to go back to her profession – because
    that had brought her self- dignity and self-esteem. But I will not say
    the ending and spoil of interest.

    A very good – sensitive movie! (Stars 7.5 out of 10)
