Very cool film
19 September 2003 | by (Back of Beyond) – See all my reviews

I say this film a couple of nights ago when I couldn't find anything to watch. Having seen the first couple of minutes I was wondering if I'd made the right decision, I'm glad I stuck with it because this is one very cool film. Twists that keep you guessing, fantastic acting, an unusual ending, splendid locations. And, the absolutely gorgeous Radha Mitchell. See this film, you won't be disappointed.

One question though - what is it with Volvo's? They appear in almost every film I've ever seen!
