Fiona 1998
Description: The director of Sue continues his exploration of the theme of lonely girls lost in the large town with Fiona, which goes one step further and exposes the wasted lives of whores and junkies in Fresh York. The storyline of Fiona and her mother said in eight chapters. Fiona is abandoned at six months of age, raised in foster and adoptive homes, abused, and, still a teen, hustles on the roads of Fresh York. We watch her test heroine, fall in love with another women, be pursued by men, engage in murderous violence, hide out in a crack house, and decide to leave the city. We see her mother, also a streetwalker and drug user, occasionally talk about her lost daughter. Fiona has a necklace she was clutching when a foundling. Will mother and daughter meet? Is there a silver lining?

Fiona Reviews:

Amos Kollek gotta be crazy. "Fiona" is a movie not only about prostitutes and crack addicts. It was an whole helping cast of the true deal. Not just extras, few of the main characters are current prostitutes and crack addicts with much of the movie shot in a NYC crack house / ruin pad. This is about as massive duty as you can receive without it being a documentary. Actually, this is beyond documentary because Kollek is no quiet observer. He's in there as a director working closely with the drug addicts and prostitutes. It's Dogma taken in a weird, risky and, inadvertently, titillating direction.The storyline follows a young woman, Fiona (Anna Thomson) from her recollections of being sexually abused in a foster home to her journeys on the streets. The plot turns Oedipal as we meet her mother, who is a much more weathered prostitute working the same streets. Eventually, their paths meet and our streetwise Ophelia finally transcends her destiny by taking control of it.Yeah, it's a easy plot. But the plot is really just a hanger with which a series of vignettes, both shocking and touching, are draped. Kollek's previous film, "Sue" (which also starred Anna Thomson), allow him wear his influences on his sleeve as it clearly brings Cassavettes to mind. "Fiona" lets him take it to it's logical extent which, while most folks will remember the grim moments, also allowed for some very true moments unlike anything you'll see at the multi-plex.


Director Amos Kollek's jittery, hand-held camera acts as a window into a globe of despair and hopelessness and for nearly 90 mins we receive to peer in. Oh joy!The movie opens with a prostitute discarding her crying baby in an alleyway. It is the life of that orphaned girl, Fiona (Levine), that is chronicled in this Amos Kollek film.The movie jumps ahead a number of years and we see Fiona as she is now. A deep thinking, psychotic, drug addicted, prostitute who spends the majority of her time shooting heroin and hanging around with her lesbian lover. Then, in a fully contrived sequence, obviously inserted to advance the plot, Fiona shoots and kills three police officers in a diner. She takes refuge in a crackhouse and continues her downward spiral into hell.I'm not sure what Kollek was trying to tell with this film. It was as if he was trying to shock the audience with the spectacle of road life and those who dwell there. Visually, the movie is jarring, it has a very authentic look and feel to it and Anna Levine offers an inspiring performance. But the movie as a entire the movie has very tiny redeeming qualities, including the hero of Fiona who at first is likeable and sympathetic until she kills three police officers and brushes it off with a shrug of her shoulders. After that, I couldn't have cared less about her, her issues and the issues of those around her. Along with all the disconcerting photos that the movie throws at the viewer, the sequence where the mother and daughter reunite has to be the most awkward and disturbing of the film.Watch it for the spectacle. You may come away from the movie better educated about the lives of road folks or maybe you'll just come away feeling empty. I did!


Although there were a several pleasantly surprising moments, this is basically just a typical movie about a drug user/prostitute. Despite some scenes that were fairly original, the picture that is painted in this movie is a very familiar one. In another words, most of the characters in this film have serious problems, and many of the usual happenings that you might expect to take zone do eventually occur. Terrible sound also hurts the movie from time-to-time, but the low-budget look of the film does suit the storyline well. It's an adequate method to slay some time, but don't expect much entertainment.
