Steve is a man who has it all, a successful career, wonderful children, beautiful home and a loving wife. However, returning to his home after work on his birthday, he finds his house deserted and darkened with almost all the lightbulbs missing, all easy access outside cut off and a videotape waiting for him. Playing that tape, he watches a bizarre and grueling recording in which his wife explains her grievance with him, her reasons for disappearing with the children and her revenge for how he treated her in a way he would never forget.

The premise to this Australian flick were very positive so I watched with the highest expectations, or well the ones I used to had with similar genre movies. This movie was really disappointing, it starts off with a good mood and all that reminding the best Haneke of Cachè, Funny Games and Benny's Video but then turns out to be an empty case of feminine frustration (could be a darkened spin-off of sex and the city) with absolute no emotional value and particular twists. There are also some plot holes and unlikely reactions of the characters but you'll keep on with the movie whatsoever to see how far the bleak wife can go on. Just a nice acting can't save a vacuous movie. Trying to differ is fine, but not this way.
