A brutal, shattering story of child trafficking that is intended to deliver a sobering punch about the global human trafficking trade, Marco Kreutzpaintner's powerful drama is in fact based on investigative reports in the New York Times.

As cinema, 'Trade' is flawed: the script is functional and the dry characters are hemmed in by the machinations of an unremarkable plot.

Such difficult subject matter requires a harder-edged delivery, but hopefully this accessible drama will therefore get its message across to a wider audience.

With terrific performances and strong direction throughout, this hard-hitting thriller delivers a powerful wake-up call.

Just misses making its urgent point, which was surely the purpose of this emotionally stirring, troubling film, by turning up the excessively convoluted melodrama, and turning its eyes away from the sociopolitical issues that sex slavery thrives on.

Yes, a conventional documentary about sex slavery would probably be more illuminating. It would also be more unbearable.

What ultimately tips the scales is its determination to avoid sentimentality.

Grim, hard to take, and nightmare-producing, Trade is not for the faint of heart.

A transcendent rather than merely tragic film...

This mostly effective dramatization paints a suitably ugly picture of the dehumanizing depths people are willing to go for money.

Without making a message movie, the filmmakers have shed light on a serious yet underappreciated sociopolitical issue.

A bone-chilling, disturbing thriller about a forbidden subject the government would probably like to sweep under the rug.

A scary, poignant, and unforgettable film that elicits our outrage and compassion as it puts faces and feelings on the victims of the international trade in sex slaves.

As a movie, Trade is so-so, but as an exposť of how the new globalized industry of sex trafficking really works, it's a disquieting, eye-opening bulletin.
