Summary: Aleksandra is a student from a small town in Ljubljana and she has a single-minded plan to conquer the world. Working as a prostitute, she gets her life heading where she wants it to, but an accidental death has her wrestling with new feelings of fear, loneliness and responsibility. (imdb)
There are other films with the same themes that completely fail to address the humanity of the characters involved, but I think this reflects the poverty of the cinematic landscape rather than any actual strength on the part of Slovenian Girl. While much of the direction is certainly competent, it flounders around its subject without actually managing to resolve any of the questions it poses or even daring to attempt to solve them to begin with. There are glimpses of a good film in there though.
I liked here how they put the message of the movie through the song: in the beginning father played "Smoke on the Water" and ended the gig with "Bobby Brown". An ex-call girl picked up from there lines that described her the most. There is no short cuts in life.
