Film Night – Call Girl On DVD

Call Girl Film Review

For film night over the weekend I watched Call Girl, a film which I’ve wanted to watch for a while and actually bought ages ago, but it’s on for over 2 hours and so needed to make the time to watch it properly. It’s another one of those films which I caught on TV, I only seen it for about 20 minutes but it seemed really intriguing so I decided to buy the DVD so I could see it from start to finish.

It’s quite a complicated film to describe. First of all it’s an independent dramatic film which was released in 2012 and is Swedish, set in Sweden in the 1970’s around the time there was an election. It is based on a true story, and the political scandals in Sweden in the 70s, a time where women’s liberation and sexual revolution takes place. The film’s main characters are Iris (Sofia Karemyr) and Sonja (Josefin Asplund), who are teenagers who are sent to live in a juvenile home and become friends. They run off to the city on a night for adventures, and get introduced to Dagmar Glans (Pernilla August), who’s a madam and well known to authorities. She provides prostitutes to rich and powerful clients, including political Swedish figures which becomes subject to a police investigation ran by a young Vice detective, John Sandberg (Simon J. Berger).

It’s such an interesting film, quite dark and gritty, and I won’t spoil the rest of how it goes or the ending if you’ve not seen it (if you really wanna know you can read it on IMDB).

You should definitely give this a try if Scandi indie films or those films set in the 70’s are something which interests you. If you’ve already seen it let me know what you thought of it.
