Ta Kokkina Fanaria (The Red Lanterns)
Red Lanterns takes place in the Greek port community of Piraeus. The five main characters are prostitutes, working the sailors who come to town. As we see each lady on the job, the film reveals via flashback and monologue the circumstances that brought them to their current state in life. No effort is made to condemn or proselytize; the women are what they are, and that's that. Originally released in Greece as Kokkina Phanaria, Red Lanterns was adapted by Alekos Galanos from his own stage play. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"This Greek drama, nominated for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar, was considered bold and audacious in its goal to offer a realitsic portraiture of five prostitutes."
