Storyline

After the installation of an alarm system by the twenty-three year old low-class Adam in her fancy upper class apartment, the sophisticated owner Alice invites him to go with her in her boss' "opening house" boring party in the countryside. Adam dates Alice and has a dream night in the fashionable party inclusive having sex with her. While driving back home in a lonely road in the middle of the night, Alice hits a deer and the couple parks the car to remove the wounded animal from the road. However, a van stops and a gang brutally assaults Adam and rapes Alice. One month later, Adam is impotent with Alice, has awful scars in his face and a blind eye and the traumatized Alice returns to her work. However, she is informed that her father has passed away and she travels back to the countryside to visit her father's home. While driving back home, she meets one of her rapist by chance and she discovers where he lives. Alice meets Adam and convinces him to come with her to take revenge ...

Goofs

When the main characters are driving through the woods after the sex scene, they hit a deer which completely smashes the windscreen. Immediately afterward, there is an attack scene, where she is dragged from the car after the windscreen is entirely smashed through. In a shot of the car, the number plate is hanging off, blood is on the windows and the windscreen is shattered. In the next scene, Danny Dyer is seen turning the alarm in the car off with the number plate attached, no blood or dents on the car and a completely intact windscreen which is almost shinier than before.

starts out slow, but gets a little better
21 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I thought this movie started out kind of slow because it was just random sex and nudity and then a brutal attack and nothing happened for like 30 minutes. But then it started to get better about 50 minutes into the movie because things start to happen that are relatively entertaining, but some of the scenes are really unnecessary at times. Altogether I give this a 6 out of 10 because it started slow but got a little better and it had a solid ending too. I wouldn't recommend it, but if u want to see a thriller and your bored, then go ahead and give it a chance because Gillian Anderson pulls off a pretty good performance as a victim out for revenge.
