An exciting thriller let down by a poor cast
14 September 2004 | by (London) – See all my reviews

An good thriller which in my opinion was let down by a slightly dubious cast and poor direction. While the script was a little obvious it seemed to have the potential for much more and I liked the premise of a foreigner out of his depth in a strange country and the central relationship that was bought together by this situation. I think the director however missed out on building the tense claustrophobic atmosphere that this should have been. This could have been partly due to the cinematography however, which, while starting out with very stylish exteriors, seemed to lose all sense of it's cinematic scope on the interiors.

I noticed that the script was based upon Michael Walker's original screenplay. Having recently seen some of his short work which seems to be doing very well at the moment I wonder what his original screenplay was like?
