Rating:
R
Trade is a crime drama directed by Marco Kreuzpaintner and released in 2007. In the film, Jorge (Cesar Ramos), a 17-year-old from Mexico City is on a desperate mission to save his sister, Adriana (Paulina Gaitan). The 13-year-old school girl was kidnapped by sex traffickers, held prisoner below the city and put on the market for sale. Veronika (Alicja Bachleda), a young Polish woman who was tricked into joining the traffickers some years before, quickly befriends Adriana and does what she can to protect her from the thugs. Jorge tracks his sister to the United States and dodges immigration officials who would have him deported. He joins forces with Ray (Kevin Kline), a Texas Ranger who is sympathetic to Jorge's plight because of his own family's experience with traffickers. The characters must fight their way through rugged desert terrain and the tunnels below the Mexican-American border to find Adriana and set things right.

    Variety Robert Koehler

    Little more than a slipshod, trashy, sometimes exploitative thriller.
