UNDERRATED: 'Meet the Fokkens' (2012)
While some measure of tragedy is part of the story in just about any documentary about prostitution, this import from the Netherlands mostly transcends expectations through the strength of its relentlessly quirky leads in twin, 69-year-old veterans of Amsterdam's Red Light District. Loud, bawdy and suffused with their own measures of sadness, the twins have a vibrant spirit that remains undaunted, and a curious treat to watch.
