Working Girls (Filles de joie)

Belgium, France 2020 | 90 minutes | French | Hebrew, English subtitles

Axelle, Conso, and Dominique all work as escorts in a brothel on the border between Belgium and France. We follow Axelle as the father of her son persues her, get immersed in Conso's love life, and worry together with Dominique about her daughter. Working Girls is a crafty and stunning film that with the clever use of the timeline and the magnificent performances manages to bring us closer to its protagonists, and examines our ability to look at sex workers without judgment but with abundance of sympathy.
