SHORT TAKES

"Irina Palm"


Director: Sam Garbarski

News photo

Language: English

How young does one have to be to work in a "massage parlor" in London's Soho? As 60-something Maggie (Marianne Faithful) discovers, all one needs are a pair of soft and compliant hands, never mind the age. She takes on the job to pay for an operation for her grandson and, though disgusted at first, soon adjusts to her new environment. She even attracts a sizable clientele and the grudging respect of brusque proprietor Miki (Miki Manojlovic). An eye-opener for Faithful fans, in more ways than one.
