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

Perfect Strangers is a perfect movie
28 September 2004 | by See all my reviews

True is, if I haven't been many years the Sam Neill's fan I'd have never rented videotape with this movie. First I have read user comments at this pages and I thought this movie is something quite modern, unwatchable, not too much comprehensible. Finally, when i have watched it, I was pleasantly surprised. By my mean story about woman who sank up under influence insane handsome man is really great movie. I like this unique mix romance, a little humor, a little horror and psychology used in this movie. It is refreshing and remarkable thing inside the flood many and many constantly similar productions from the all world. If you prefer not traditional story, if you like emotional movies, if you like great camera, and if you don't persist at traditional happy ends, you would love this movie.
