Only a few weeks after her husband's mysterious death, Maureen returns from a cruise with handsome Brit Oliver Vance in tow. Her son Scott is mortified. He still can't believe that his father - a world-class athlete - actually drowned. When Maureen and Oliver announce wedding-plans, Scott's world begins to fall apart. Oliver's attractive daughter Kelly shares Scott's distrust of the impending marriage - and proposes a theory of her own: is it possible that Maureen and Oliver have known each other longer than just a few weeks; and if so, could they have possibly killed Scott's father? The two start to investigate - and soon fall in love. But while they are united by a horrible suspicion, the investigation soon reveals some secrets that keep them apart. Scott has to realize that he can truly trust no one - not Oliver, not Maureen and definitely not Kelly. Written by Karsten Kastelan

Excellent Movie
23 April 2005 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

I saw the movie in Germany, for the Berlin premiere and had an excellent time watching it. The film had great suspense and superb acting and I really enjoyed the directional choices. As an audience member I kept guessing on what would happen next and the plot was very well thought out. I am looking forward to much more from the people behind this movie. I liked the location and also thought that the camera work was excellent. I think this movie is especially well suited for a European audience but it should also fare well in the states and I would love for it to get a wider release so that the people in Scandinavia could see it too.
