    What we really want is to get to know them. Instead, the film too-aptly reflects life in their line of work: brief interludes rather than intimate soul-baring. That's a shame, since there can't be that many 70-year-old identical twin prostitutes with a 50-year history in the business. show more

    Delightful and informative! This movie gives a peek into Holland\'s world of legal prostitution through these twin sister prostitutes. Definitely worth seeing. It ended leaving us wanting more!
