Filmmaker Anahi Berneri... offers a no-apologies look at a member of a risk-taking underclass dinged on all sides.
Whatever preconceived notions about sex industry workers that accompany you into the theatre are bound to be shattered, thanks in large part to Ms. Gala's frank and tender performance.
A punchy and entirely unsentimental study of a few days in the life of a young Buenos Aires sex worker that's as defiantly non-miserabilist as its heroine.
Alanis is a gorgeous, humanist motion picture, a film that uses rich photography full of texture to paint a portrait of life on the periphery of society.
In tackling just how easy it is to fall through the cracks, "Alanis" is entirely gripping with a lead that may have trouble finding a place to live on screen, but will likely reside in the hearts and minds of anyone who experiences her story.
Alanis is not a film about conscience or morality but about the insistence of a woman's autonomy over her body.
Berneri is not interested in denouncing these injustices that are obvious and well known. Her intention is to observe this girl, the relationship with her charming baby and the way in which she plans to survive today, on this day, at this moment.
The film's final 20 minutes suffer from the notion that a film about sex work must contain violence, but "Alanis" is otherwise fairly respectful and shows director [Anahi] Berneri's skill at imagining her character's world.
... impressive work by Sofia Gala... [Full review in Spanish]
Alanis is a contemporary thriller about the emptiness suffered by women who only have their bodies as the means to make money to live. [Full review in Spanish]
A decade ago, Sofía Gala... had minor roles or the movies did not usually match her characters. Only now thanks to Alanis, film and character finally share that quality that should be beneficial for the actress. [Full review in Spanish]
