*** Whores’ Glory. Michael Glawogger, Austria/Germany. North American Premiere. Whores’  Glory is a cinematic triptych on prostitution: three countries, three  languages, three religions. In Thailand, women wait for clients behind  glass panes, staring at reflections of themselves. In Bangladesh, men go  to a ghetto of love to satisfy their unfulfilled desires on indentured  girls. And in Mexico, women mix hard drugs with sex labour to avoid  facing their own reality. In worlds where the most intimate act has  become a commodity, these women have physically and emotionally  experienced everything that can happen between a man and a woman. For  this they have always received money, but it has not made their lives  rich in anything but stories ***
