Superb suspenseful thriller
16 August 2001 | by (Amsterdam, The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Excellent performances and well-chosen locations build up the tension throughout this film. I particularly liked the eerie dark side of the character Finn. It's a pity the actress who plays Finn is not mentioned as a cast menber on the IMDB website.

I like thrillers by authors like Tim Krabbe, Elizabeth George and Stephen King. The thriller which was shown the next day on BBC "What they did that night" was also a class apart: very tense, nice locations: comparable to "The Safe House".
