    One of the most devastating films I've ever seen. The definitive film dealing with prostitution, and quite simply one of the greatest films I've ever viewed. With deep sincerity the film unflinchingly shows the tragedy of the women's lives, depicting them not as prostitutes, but rather as women in prostitution, and showing not only what they go through during this period, but ultimately showing the price they paid throughout their lives by being outcast for the services they we're forced to provide. The performances and cinematography are fantastic. Underrated would be saying very little...A masterpiece! 3 years 11 months ago
