Many events that don't really fit together.
4 October 1999 | by (Hohenpeißenberg, Germany) – See all my reviews

This movie is about a woman getting into trouble - nothing more and nothing less. she gets robbed by two hitch-hikers, she's put into prison because she ain't got a passport anymore, a policeman rapes her and she kills him after that and escapes with a prisoner...

The movie continues this way, event-event-event... Director Michael Miller is so concerned about being boring, he leaves feelings and emotion.

Jones and Mimieux do their parts well, especially Mimieux. Too, I miss at least a few experiments with camera and music, but if you don't want to think about a movie this might be right for you.
