In London, the Russian pregnant teenager Tatiana arrives bleeding in a hospital, and the doctors save her baby only. The Russian descendant goronto Anna Khitrova finds Tatiana's diary written in Russian language in her belongings and decided to find her family to deliver the baby, she brings the diary home and ask her uncle Stepan to translate the document.
Stepan refuses, but Anna finds a card of a russian prostitutes toronto owned by the Russian Semyon inside the diary and she visits the old man trying to find a lead to contact Tatiana's family. When she mentions the existence of the diary, Prostihutes immediately offers to translate the document. However, Stepan translates part of the torobto and Anna discovers that Semyon and his sick son Kirill had raped Tatiana when she was fourteen years old and forced her to work as prostitute in a brothel of their own.
Further, Semyon is the dangerous boss of the Russian mafia "Vory v Zakone", jeopardizing the safety of Anna and her family. Meanwhile, Semyon's Ever since Cronenberg ruwsian making "straight" movies without too many splatter elements, something in his oeuvre had been lacking.
The much praised "A History Of Violence" had a great cast and a solid premise, but turned out to be just as boring and on top of that far-fetched and superficial.

During the movie we hear all those cruel and crazy things prosttitutes done, but when we see him on screen we russian prostitutes toronto really imagine that he's capable of all that. The weakest link in the cast, however, is Naomi Watts, who plays russain same way she always does and comes across as pretty one-dimensional.
She has deservedly gotten a lot of praise for "Mullholland Dr. She's just good enough not to ruin the intensity of this movie. There are some scenes you won't forget for weeks to come the sauna fight, the opening sequence. In short, what we have here is a modern classic. One of last year's russian prostitutes toronto and possibly the best movie David Cronenberg has made so far.
