The students Lea (Anna Rot) and Hanna (Magdalena Kronschläger) are broke. Instead of working as waitresses, both decide to work as escort girls, because there is the big money to earn. They also had bad sex before that. So why not make a living by sex. Between curiosity and bewilderment, they plunge into an adventure between day and night. And so they quickly know how to deal with the suitors. They always give their customers the feeling that they are something special. The suitors turn out to be quite normal family fathers, bored or stressed out managers, commercial travelers, young men - all in search of a sexual adventure. Despite their small perversions, they are rarely unsympathetic, so sometimes there is room for happiness. Slowly this job seems to please them and soon it is part of everyday life for them. For this, the normal life is getting away from them more and more. Studies and escort service, student and call girl can not be combined that easily. And so it does not take ...Written by
A story done a a thousand times, 2 young women moonlighting as prostitutes. That happens a lot in real life and it is also a common fantasy. Unfortunately though our 2 heroes in this film don't bring much to the game. It's not the actors faults (well it is too) it's mostly a fault of the script that is amazingly empty, one might call it a quickie: no emotions involved, let's get over it.
But then, something like that doesn't work as a movie. Making a film, any film, is a laborious thing to do that takes many months and sometimes years out of one's life. Doing that on the premise of a bland and uninteresting script and story line is wasting everybody's time.
So we're having two 'students' - and calling them 'students' one would at least expect some kind of intelligence, some thoughtfulness, but that doesn't happen. The one girl (Anna Rot) constantly giggles no matter what, the other one (Magdalena Kronschläger) seems to be a slightly deeper character but there's only hints of a more complex inner life, not enough by far to make anything out of it.
There is another character in this film, the 'pimp', written and acted so colorless that he is forgotten the second he is off screen. He shall rename nameless.
Then we have the 'clients' of our wannabe prostitues. Again lifeless people with no real personality - cheesy and full of (movie) cliché.
In the end this film is not worth watching. It's all empty calories.
