The filmmaker could not seem to make up her mind whether this was supposed to be a comedy, or a straight expose of the seamy underbelly of human trafficking. Because of that indecision, this viewer was unable to work up any sympathy for the plight of the "puta" of the title. Maybe if the young woman had enjoyed her work a little less, or her lover/pimp had been a bit more ruthless, or if we had been given any reason to see her as a victim more than a willing accomplice in her own enslavement then this might have been able to make a statement. The trial at the end seemed more like vindictive revenge by a jilted lover than an actual pursuit of justice. The plot was hard to follow, the motivations were vague at best, the scenery mostly dark exteriors or squalid hotel rooms, the sex chaste, and the dialog unfocused. Not much here to recommend this.
