Let Me Rescue You Before Someone Else Does

Australia, 1990 (MIFF 1990, Fiction)

Director: Doerthe Jansen

A respectable public servant fantasizes himself as a hero, driven to save the soul of a woman from the claws of prostitution. At the suburban massage parlour however, it's business as usual. This is a quirky comedy on romantic love, AIDS, and working women.
