In This Tricky Life (Spanish: En la puta vida) is a 2001 Uruguayan film directed by Beatriz Flores Silva. It was Uruguay's submission to the 74th Academy Awards for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, but was not accepted as a nominee.[1][2] The film was awarded the Colón de Oro at the Festival de Cine Iberoamericano de Huelva.

It is based on the novel El huevo de la serpiente by journalist María Urruzola, whose investigations exposed an Uruguayan sex trafficking network in 1992.[3]
