Storyline

In the former Yugoslavia, the French medical team formed by Carole, Samir and Dr. Mathias are returning from Kosovo to Paris by truck. They find a road block and the soldier tells that the army had found mines on the road and is deactivating them; therefore they should wait three hours to follow their journey. Dr. Mathias suggests Carole to drive through a secondary road and they get lost. They ask for direction in an isolated house and sooner a van intercepts their truck in a lonely road. They are abducted and arrested in dirty cells but fed. When Samir is removed from the cell, they find the true intention of the kidnappers. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Trivia

Former Minister of Justice in the Government of Serbia Snezana Malovic believes that film is a frightening attempt to replace the role and creating confusion in the world public: "This film, in which Serbs were presented as killers and traders of bodies, apparently is intended to devalues Dick Marty report, which found that the Serbs were the victims of killings whose bodies were traded. It is intolerable mockery of the real victims and their families, which in this way they can survive yet another crime." See more »

Message in a Cage
27 January 2014 | by (Pakistan) – See all my reviews

The film starts in Yugoslavia, crosses borders into Kosovo and ends at the back of a UN jeep.

War is perpetual. That is obvious and that is also the message in a cage where there is no mercy, no compassion or respect for life when the rush of war takes over. It is an imperative that it be so, such is the obstinate nature of war and 'Captifs'.

Director Yaan Gozlan's first feature length moves you with atmosphere, sound and baffling and hypnotic camera work. sometimes it moves you inside out and you can also watch it happening (derealisation in films).

'Captifs' is like a kid casually telling a story and suddenly everything gets very serious, extremely uncomfortable and horrific. Some scenes make you want to look away, but you don't; such is the pull of this film.

The film has it's faults but I'd rather stick to the film as whole; I'd rather tell you the good and you figure the bad for yourself, or maybe not. That's why.

In the end it is, in my opinion, telling you how it feels to be at war. How it must feel to not be forgiven, to see madness in the oppressor's eye and then, eventually to start relating to the look.

It left something back. Something that cannot be shed or shaken off.
