Storyline

Attempting suicide, sultry but down-on-her-luck swindler Liz is rescued by lonely tow truck driver Aiden. But instead of rushing her to the hospital, Liz's savior abducts her to his remote farmhouse, convinced that she is the wife who abandoned him years earlier. Cut off from civilization, kept prisoner and guarded day and night by vicious attack dogs, Liz realizes she must rely on her skills as a con artist to talk her way out of this hostage situation. In the satiric tradition of Buffalo '66, Misery, Black Snake Moan, and Secretary, comes this captivating black comedy about the ties that bind. Written by Dokument Films

From Bearded Nutjob to Paranoid Schizophrenic Dreamboat
5 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Well, my girlfriend seemed to think the main guy was handsome without his beard at least. I can't imagine this film will be released in America so I'm lucky to have seen it at the Philadelphia International Film Festival.

Overall the movie makes great use of its hour and a half running time, being consistently absorbing throughout its entirety. The story is rather standard of captive growing to trust their captor fare and then turning the tables on them, but it is wittily written enough to make the concept seem fresh. Much of this has to due with the superb straight-forward direction without a lot of tricky camera work, so that in some ways it is reminiscent of a Dogma film. Especially nice is that there is no over- or melodramatic score interrupting the natural flow of the scenes which is always a plus Overall a highly recommended film.
