Za ovaj mi je jedan prijatelj rekao da ga obavezno pogledam, sam nedavno našao na netu i doživio totalno razočarenje. Možda ovo filmsko "remek djelo" i nije toliko loše koliko ja nisam bio raspoložen za temuu filma. Radi se prikazu dezorjentisanih tinejdzera koji su upali u Danteov krug droge, prostitucije i u samo dno ljudske zajednice! Izdrogirani tinejdžeri koji upadaju u ruke raznih makroa, sadistički nastrojenih pedofiličara i sličnih maštaju o slavi, novcu i naravno danu kada će izaći iz devetog kruga.
Naravno odatle izlaza nema!
Ono što me je iznerviralo je činjenica da niko na takve stvari ne obraća pažnju, sve dok je u igri veliki novac! Sve je samo velika gluma!
Ko ima želudac za ovu temu preporučujem mu da pogleda ovaj film!

A Great Movie From Start to Finish, 4 September 2004, 9/10
Author: Se7en13 from Canada
While as real as it gets The other movie that Director had done was Body without Soul. While not as great as Body without the Soul. Mandragora puts a story and makes it breathtaking from start to finish. The main star Marek runs away and decides to become a prostitute. He gets picked up by a slimy greasy pimp. But later on meets another prostitute, David, both of them start to hustle around and make money to start there own prostitute organization. In the movie you can Tell Marek is attracted to David very much and that he is gay. But things go down hill as Marek starts doing drugs and then finds out he has AIDS, a very powerful story in my opinion.
Most people have said that it's unrealistic and very untrue i find this movie has some great elements while not the best movie ever made and not quite perfect it's a movie about mistakes and paths in life as well as coming of age and the downside of prostitution. The movie ends with one of the saddest I've seen in a while beautifully shot and written if you enjoyed movies like L.I.E. Mandragora is right up there to watch as well.
