Clumsy attempt from utterly untalented director and actors
A topic based on the kidnapping of a child is packed with such substance and emotion that it naturally raises expectations for the viewers to experience similar emotions. One would expect to get a glimpse of what it feels and looks like to be in the state of Natascha Kampusch for 8 grueling years. Instead the viewer is given completely erratic scenes one after the other that merely raise the suspicion that the script was created by a 12-year-old and the actors hired off the street.
A well written script with capturing directing would have done this emotion-packed story justice, however, the characters are left completely shallow and meaningless to the viewer due to poor directing, senseless dialog, horribly cut scenes and actors with the kind of talent most often seen in infomercials.
