Not much there besides emptiness
A story done a a thousand times, 2 young women moonlighting as prostitutes. That happens a lot in real life and it is also a common fantasy. Unfortunately though our 2 heroes in this film don't bring much to the game. It's not the actors faults (well it is too) it's mostly a fault of the script that is amazingly empty, one might call it a quickie: no emotions involved, let's get over it.
But then, something like that doesn't work as a movie. Making a film, any film, is a laborious thing to do that takes many months and sometimes years out of one's life. Doing that on the premise of a bland and uninteresting script and story line is wasting everybody's time.
So we're having two 'students' - and calling them 'students' one would at least expect some kind of intelligence, some thoughtfulness, but that doesn't happen. The one girl (Anna Rot) constantly giggles no matter what, the other one (Magdalena Kronschläger) seems to be a slightly deeper character but there's only hints of a more complex inner life, not enough by far to make anything out of it.
There is another character in this film, the 'pimp', written and acted so colorless that he is forgotten the second he is off screen. He shall rename nameless.
Then we have the 'clients' of our wannabe prostitues. Again lifeless people with no real personality - cheesy and full of (movie) cliché.
In the end this film is not worth watching. It's all empty calories.
