Aesthetically, Call Girl is consistently engaging and fluid, but never particularly innovative or surprising, and the narrative is hardly different in its unremarkable competence.

For a story supposedly condemning the green slime of sexual exploitation there is an overwhelming blandness, a blankness to it all.

It's overlong and spends too much time on the careers of troubled teenagers recruited from state juvenile institutions before getting to the political nitty-gritty.

A convoluted 134 minutes but impressive for a debut feature. Watch this space.

Call Girl underlines the hypocrisy of a society which boasted of promoting women's liberation whilst abusing its weakest members.

Though an ultimately shallow piece of filmmaking - and one that is difficult to invest in emotionally - it remains a captivating and enticing piece of cinema.

Grey hair, hedonism and exploitation are colliding at every turn.

This is another whip-smart Scandinavian noir: slightly uncomfortable in its own skin, perhaps, but no less compelling for it.

It's a finely crafted film, with big production values and a first-rate cast that's almost eerily natural. And what it has to say is chillingly important.

If this is based on fact then why not make a documentary, naming names? Well, it is food for thought.

It's like Britain's Profumo affair but much sleazier and with more to say about the corruption of ideals.
