Disquieting portrait of an abduction
20 September 2002 | by (La Rioja, Spain) – See all my reviews

This carefully narrated TV film offers a reasonably coherent insight into people's feelings and reactions when a member of the household is kidnapped for ransom. For this reason `disquieting' is an apt term to use. Too often we hear on the news how children have disappeared: anger swells, especially when the kids are found murdered. And one cannot help thinking `how can such terrible people exist? Why isn't there a prison on some remote island without water or electricity where these drop-outs can be put away forever?

Especially in the first hour the story is gripping. Good playing here by the young Joanna Potts in an evidently difficult part, more or less ably supported by the rest of the cast.

Entering into the second hour the story seems to take on a long-winded detour which at times is unnecessary, and the third hour turns up some highly unlikely coincidences. However, bear with it, as the exploration of the family's agonizing feelings is well carried out. This TV production makes every decent person feel very very strongly about child abductions, pedophile activity and so on.

My main complaint is that as this is a Scottish TV production, I would have preferred it to have been made in Scotland – NOT in London!
