Requiem For A Whore Synopsis

A Dogma 95 film six years before there was such a thing, REQUIEM FOR A WHORE chronicles the last day in the life of a street prostitute (played by Amy Wallin) named Pearl. Bouncing back and forth between her heartless, manipulative pimp and her loving but ineffective boyfriend, Pearl's only solace is the company of her fellow street walkers. But when destiny appears in the form of a kinky, producer of religious TV programming, Pearl's fate is sealed. Shot entirely in the meat packing district of Manhattan, REQUIEM'S dark, grittty images, elegant hand-held camerawork, austere organ score and unflinching point-of-view combine to create a hard-hitting, hyper-realistic drama.
