With the film “Call Girl” Marietta broke new ground in Swedish contemporary cinema. The film is a deep dive into dark social and political secrets, during a time when Sweden was considered a flawless democracy. The film shattered the image of Sweden as an innocent, just society, and became an artistic prequel to the me-too awareness, by showing the world of corrupt men from the point of view of a young girl in the care of those very same men.
