A well-rounded and most enjoyable suspense film!
25 March 1999 | by (Pretoria, South Africa) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed this movie very much. The plot, about a mother's attempts to recover her kidnapped child, could have descended into unnecessary sentimentality, but did not. The movie was dramatic and suspense-filled and the characters where human and believable. Good escapist viewing!
