Critic Reviews for Alanis
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 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]
