Not exactly a French kiss

The movie tells a story about an arrogant businessman who's interested in renting an room. When he arrives in the building and takes the elevator to go to the room, he gets stuck in it. Nobody seems to care for him, even the lady who rents the room! He stays stuck for a few days and you can see clearly the man is going crazy, and is willing to get out against every price...

I liked this one. Although it's made with a low budget, the movie just gets you and never let go. The lady is very dominant and you can see that she's hurt by men before, and lets it all out against the business man. Nice dialogs between the lady and the businessman in a steady speed keeps the movie thrilling,( you'll never know what's her next move....) but it weakens in the end. Too bad, otherwise this one would be a classic !

I give it a 4 out of 5
