Did You Know?

Goofs:
Continuity: During close-ups of Steve's hand tied up by barbed wires we can clearly see that his hand is soaked with blood. However, in the immediate scene after, where he managed to wriggle out of the wires and bring his hands in front of him his hand is only bleeding a little bit. There was no time for him to wipe all the blood clean.See more »

Breaks you down, 30 June 2009
Author: cookie666 from Estonia

I can't remember the last time a film evoked such raw emotions in me. I'm literally teared up and shaking - from anger, pain, frustration and disbelief. Watching this film is an experience more than words can describe, it plays on pure emotion. You're sucked into the whole atmosphere, to the characters - both the good and the bad -, and it really eats you up and leaves you with this bundle of emotions that catch you off guard and in the end, leave you empty-handed.

I'm sorry for not being very precise about the plot and the characters, but I simply can't write an ordinary "this film opens with..." review, the experience was just too much.

I highly recommend it, but not for the weak-hearted.
