Synopsis

Having grown up in small-town Slovenia, 23-year-old Alexandra embraces the excitement and anonymity of big city life when she moves to the capital. She styles herself as a call girl, planning to take advantage of everything the city has to offer. But her isolated existence - English studies and mortgage payments by day, call girl lifestyle by night - is shattered when one of her clients, a visiting politician, dies of a heart attack on her watch. Alexandra must suddenly confront fear, guilt, and desperation as she finds herself pursued by a band of local pimps, as well as the cops, hot on her trail. The old village life she had escaped from might now become her only refuge.

ALEXANDRA'S PROJECT
Directed by Rolf de Heer
YEAR 3 FILM 1
It's Steve's (Gary Sweet) birthday and he's just been promoted at the office. In a good mood, he goes home to his family expecting to celebrate. Instead, he finds an empty suburban home and videotape labeled 'Play Me.' The tape begins with his loving wife (Helen Buday) providing birthday wishes and quickly segues, to his pleasant surprise, into a striptease. But surprise turns into shock when he sees a gun pointed at her head. As the tape plays, his seemingly ordinary life unravels into a nightmare of mind games and revenge. Along with two brilliant lead performances, acclaimed auteur Rolf de Heer brings to us his visionary new twist on the psychological thriller.

Mitch Beales - Customer Review
This brilliant piece of work may be the only film I've ever seen that focuses on prostitution without pandering (except perhaps for the cover). This film is the truth that "Pretty Woman" conceals behind a Hollywood lie. Closing the film with Zappa's "Bobby Brown" is a stroke of genius.


Angel - Customer Review
Very engaging film. It was refreshing to see a movie deal with prostitution in a realistic and unromanticized way. Nina Ivanisin is stunning as the main character; she is so believable that you can forget she is acting.



Jeff in Seattle - Customer Review
A great film! Nina Ivanisin is a great actress. Should we expect more from her in future films? "A Call Girl" shows the perils of life as a call girl on the run. This film doesn't focus on the "chase" from the police and local pimps. This is a life under seige.
