The Courtesans of Bombay Movie Review
These are the titular "courtesans of Bombay," and we eventually come to learn a little (probably too little) about this peculiar industry in India's big cities. The most cutting moment is how one of the narrators notes that pregnant women in this area pray for a girl: A boy is useless, his only potential worth to the family would be in being a pimp to other girls. In the compound, one young girl is so valuable that she can work while the rest of the family just sleeps all day on the floor (as is seen frequently in the crude video footage).
As a documentary, The Courtesans of Bombay isn't exactly artful or really very informative, but it does stand as an odd and unique look at the way the world's oldest professions works in one of te world's oldest cities.
