Storyline

After a plane crash, a young therapist, Claire, is assigned by her mentor to counsel the flight's five survivors. When they share their recollections of the incident -- which some say include an explosion that the airline claims never happened -- Claire is intrigued by Eric, the most secretive of the passengers. Just as Claire's professional relationship with Eric -- despite her better judgment -- blossoms into a romance, the survivors begin to disappear mysteriously, one by one. Claire suspects that Eric may hold all the answers and becomes determined to uncover the truth, no matter the consequences. Written by Anonymous

The camera angle then cuts immediately to a shot from outside the vehicle and shows the car stationary for a split second just before Claire pulls away. The editing is off by about a second.

Don't know why people score so low on this
22 December 2008 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Well I'm dutch, so bear with the English language...

I really liked this movie... It has almost everything. Mostly I watch action movies.. but sometimes a different genre attacks me. This movie was one of the others. Ik love the psychological real feelings.. the people with open judgement on others. The readiness to make yourself vonourable.

Still this one has some action.. some real people (well as real as you want them to be in movies).. and it warms my heart.

This is my first comment on a movie... and I am absolutely not ashamed that it is for/at this one. See it and you'll like it.. Its more than fine.
