Storyline

Melanie is out with the girls in a country town on New Zealand's wild but beautiful West Coast when she meets the perfect stranger. The inevitable question 'your place or mine?' arises and Melanie chooses his, not knowing it is a fishing boat. In the morning they are at sea destined for the stranger's home on a remote and inaccessible island. Despite the man's charm, Melanie comes to the realisation she has been kidnapped but, gradually, is captivated by strangely symbiotic nature of their relationship Written by johnno.r@xtra.co.nz

"The Man" and the woman...get a perfect 10
15 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie has been hanging out in the New Release section of blockbuster stores since the day it arrived on DVD around a year ago. That's because people keep re-renting it (no, not me...I bought my own copy). My praise will not do this movie justice. I have not seen Sam Neill act more convincingly in a movie. He got that mysterious stranger role down perfectly. Rachel Blake was extraordinary. You just couldn't take your eyes off either one of them (regardless of the condition they were in). This is a beautiful movie, with stunning actors, breathtaking scenery, and haunting music. While watching the movie, you'll find yourself asking yourself "what would I do?". You'll also say to yourself "I must get that soundtrack!" I highly recommend it! @-->--> Kris
