Director Grodecki maintains a consistent judgmental tone throughout the movie about what a terrible life these underage male prostitutes face. A life that denigrades into drugs, violence and AIDS (death). I assume some viewers will have enough after a few minutes since you get the point early and there's no redemption to the story. Those who stay to watch like me, will get the lessons of lives lost, how ineffective the cops are, and despite the fact Prague is supposed to be a beautiful city, that's it's an immoral city since the violence is so persuasive.
It's more of a documentary drama with actors who look like they live on the streets and are improvising the script. Although, the movie is well done and a respectable effort as shedding light on a social problem, it does so with a sledgehammer.
This is the worst film I have ever seen and I don't say that lightly. An insult to Czech, and former Czechoslovakian cinema that has produced gems such as 'Closely Observed Trains'.
Child/juvenile male prostitution is the hardest subjetc to digest when we talk bout' the rotten sides of society, in my opinion
