A story of sexual slavery, retaliation and greed with teasing peephole glimpses of prostitutes being tortured, “The Unknown Woman” licks its lips at every turn. One scene shows the film’s Ukrainian anti-heroine, Irena (Xenia Rappoport), frantically shoveling through a garbage dump to unearth a severed head.
