Five Female Friends
5 November 2008 | by See all my reviews

The young woman Laura Fischer (Caro Lenssen) has a session with a psychologist. The session begins with Laura telling that after two years of successive rapes of female students riding bicycles in the woods nearby the campus of the college where she studied, the student Emma Machielsen (Liesbeth Kamerling) forms a committee with Josien Schippers (Josefien Hendriks), Marieke Kopermode (Victoria Koblenko), Bonnie Javoer (Christel Oomen) and her to discuss a possible solution with the dean. However, the dean claims that he has no budget to improve the security and could only afford to provide three buses for the students. The girls decide to bike through the woods together in convoy, but when Marieke is late, they leave her alone in the campus. She decides to cross the woods alone, and the serial rapist rapes her. Her friends decide top investigate the crimes by themselves and they prepare a list of possible rapists, leading the group to a tragic consequence.

"Stille Nacht" is a simple but realistic thriller, without special effects but supported by a solid screenplay and great performances that give credibility to the tense and dramatic plot. The five unknown lead actresses are excellent and the director does not need to use any sort of exploitation in spite of the sexual theme to make the story work perfectly well. The cover of the Brazilian DVD distributed by Daylight Films makes references to IMDb reviews; unfortunately the DVD has interviews in Dutch without subtitles in Portuguese, in a total lack of respect with the viewers. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Quando a Noite Cai" ("When the Night Falls")
