A rather bad attempt at matching Shawshank Redemption. Very naive plot. The main character is hardly a character, as if an extra. The film is lacking a lot to even be watchable for an hour plus, and lacks any greatness. Perhaps the only noteworthy thing is the gathering of a set of really good actors, who regrettably have to embarrass themselves with participating in this weak (at best) project. At one moment some two thirds through, there appears a glimpse in the plot which promised a savings grace, but it ended in an even larger disappointment. Simply silly and naive. The appearance of Rade Serbedzija at the end, with his few sentences spoken without real mental involvement, only add to the clumsiness of the whole construction. Essentially a thumb down.
