Storyline

Three violent young men stranded in an isolated country house, carjack a Swiss couple driving to a wedding in the U.S. Husband Daniel blurts out that he'll pay millions if they don't hurt his pregnant wife, so the leader sets off for the wedding with Daniel, to arrange ransom. The other, strangely polite kidnappers stay in the house with the wife, but don't even lock her up, as Irene's pregnancy and religious faith play with their raw emotions. Written by David Stevens

Flawless filmmaking
3 December 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a little gem of filmmaking. The camera work is flawless, the music is great and the acting is surprisingly good. The film has a soul and I do not see it often in that genre. What makes Daylight very entertaining is that it's not predictable like most other similar flicks. The suspense builds slowly and the end while not the one I had wished is original. My only wish would have been to know more about the husband and his ordeals. His character is also interesting and could have been more developed. I find the film slightly too short but yet again shorter is always better than too long. The film is really about the experience of the lead female character and her captors. Ultimately the story is a sincere exploration about the meaning of life, of giving life, of killing and ultimately the meaning of our belief in oneself and maybe also the belief in God.
