Both are looking for work, a new beginning, an existence, and life. Olga comes from a place where unremitting poverty is the order of the day.

Whores' glory by Michael Glawogger( Visual )

2 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in German and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The third film in Michael Glawogger's globalization trilogy (following Megacities and Workingman's death), is an explicit and unflinching exposé of global prostitution. In Bangkok, Thailand, women punch a clock and wait for clients in a brightly lit glass box; in the red-light district of Faridpur, Bangladesh, a madam haggles over the price of a teenage girl; and in the border town of Reynosa, Mexico, crack-addicted women pray to a deity named Lady Death. Winner of the Orizzonti Special Jury Prize at the 2011 Venice Film Festival, Glawogger's latest larger-than-life documentary is an audacious, non-judgmental study of sexuality, politics, human behavior and the effects of capital and religion on both women and men from starkly different cultures."--Container

Melanie ist ein schönes, junges Mädchen mit einem entscheidenden Problem: sie ist übergewichtig. Während ihre Mutter in Kenia Urlaub macht und ihre Tante Anna Maria in christlicher Mission um die Häuser zieht, bereist Melanie ein anderes Universum: die Welt der Kalorientabellen und der Sporterziehung. Zwischen Wiesenwanderungen und nächtlichen Kissenschlachten werden ihre Ferien mit anderen Jugendlichen im Diätcamp zu einer Zeit der Freundschaft. Und der Liebe. Melanie verliebt sich in einen um 40 Jahre älteren Arzt, den Leiter des Camps. Sie kämpft um ihn mit der Ausschliesslichkeit der ersten Liebe und will ihn in aller Unschuld verführen. Der Doktor begehrt Melanie und versucht dennoch, gegen die Schuld dieser Liebe anzukämpfen. Weiss er doch um ihre Unmöglichkeit. Eine jugendliche Liebe im Zeichen körperlicher Disziplinierung. In>>Paradies: Hoffnung<<zeigt sich Regisseur Ulrich Seidl von seiner versöhnlichsten und unberechenbarsten Seite. Mit grosser Zartheit und ungewohnter Heiterkeit erzählt der dritte Film der>>Paradies<<-Trilogie von einer Reifeprüfung, die im Abgrund eine Hoffnung aufzuspüren weiss

Jesus, Du weisst = Jesus, you know by Ulrich Seidl( Visual )

Jesus, You Know immerses itself in the incredibly private act of prayer, turning the cinema into a confessional. The film follows six believers into the sanctity of the church and with their permission films their individual conversations with Jesus. One is a student who attends mass every day against his parent's wishes. He spends nearly all his free time in the parish and tells Jesus all his regrets, erotic fantasies, and his dreams of being a hero. Another believer is a mother of two, who spends as much time at the church as she does at home, where for years she has cared for her invalid husband. She prays that Jesus may heal her husband, a Muslim, who in turn sees his illness as God's punishment for having married a Christian. There is the retired chemistry teacher who has been cheated on by her husband with another woman. In her prayers she yearns for revenge. But isnyt revenge a sin? Like so many others, she comes to church to complain, ponder, confess, brood and pray to Jesus for forgiveness. A lonely man ask Jesus to help him find a suitable mate and despairs that life has left him yearning for earthly love. A young couple bickers and asks Jesus to reconcile their differences. Prayer becomes a way for these believers to converse with Jesus and share their innermost thoughts and problems with him and seek answers. The film is a revelatory look at faith and belief in contemporary times. Winner: Best Documentary-Karlovy Vary Film Festival Grand Prize- Vienna Film Festival Critics' Prize - Montreal Film Festival
