In Russia, in 1907, a rich lenient husband of a loose unfaithful woman is brutally murdered. She and her two lovers are suspects, but what about the stranger she met just before the murder? With no friends left, she and the stranger bond.
American pharmaceutical executive Walter Richmond takes a business trip to Amsterdam, accompanied by his wife Cathryn and their 10-year-old daughter Melissa, who has been mute ever since an accident some time ago. To communicate, Melissa uses a small magic marker board that she wears around her neck. Melissa makes a trip to the ladies' room at the hotel De L'Europe and gets separated from her parents. Melissa wanders out of the hotel and onto the street, where she witnesses the murder of Simon Van Der Molen, the attorney representing Walter's Dutch client. Unfortunately, Melissa is spotted by the killers, who are hit man Bruno Decker and his employer Rudolph Hartman, who turns out to be Walter's client.

If Van Der Molen would have told Walter about the side effects, Walter would have declined the medication, and Hartman would ... Written by
This movie begins like a comedy. Many occurrences in this movie make you believe this is a comedy. And for a while, it is.
But in the second half, the movie turns gory. Nothing more than an average action film where the killer murders anyone in his path. The comedy aspect is lost.
And as bad as this is, the girl evolves into an action hero similar to Rambo. And her father does the same.
Bottom line: this movie would have been good if it had known where to go. Comedy, action, suspense? What's this? It seems to be suffering from "The Big Hit" syndrome. It just doesn't know what genre it is aiming at.
