Genre: Comedy / Drama/ Romance

AltAss Ratings (On a scale of 1 to 5 asses)


A very intriguing subject matter and story that may be a bit on the slow side for some audiences.


Fantastic dialogue and the research that went into this project was revealed many times over in the realistic product presented on the screen.


Joe Pesci and Helen Mirren are absolutely wonderful in the lead roles and Sergio Peris-Mencheta is almost as good in his role as the fighter.  Supporting cast is professional and very solid.


You've never seen a brothel or prostitution depicted in this manner or from this perspective anywhere.


A fantastic love story that takes place within the least likely of characters and settings.  There are some moments of levity and humor to offset some of the darkness and a history lesson is taught even if achieved through extensive creative license.  Highly reccomended.
