Flash Movie Review: Born into Brothels

I am not one to compare my life to the misfortune of others, but once in a while I need a jolt, to get myself out of myself. This documentary was that jolt for me. Two filmmakers travel to Calcutta, India to document the children of prostitutes, who work the red light district. Seeing their plight was heart wrenching for me. One of the documentarians decided to give still cameras to the children and have them go out and explore the neighborhood, through their camera lens. You know part of that saying, “Out of the mouth of babes?” The children’s photos were amazing and touching for me. One has to wonder, if there is a reason or purpose for everything; then, what is the reason for these children coming into the world this way? I hope you can overcome any concerns you might have in viewing this movie and experience it for yourself.

About moviejoltz

From a long line of movie afficionados, one brother was the #1 renter of movies in the country with Blockbuster, I am following in the same traditions that came before me. To balance out the long hours seated in dark movie theaters, I also teach yoga and cycling. For the past 3 years, I have correctly picked the major Oscar winners... so join me as we explore the wonder of movies and search for that perfect 4 star movie.
