Thierry van Werveke,
The Ames' seem to have built the perfect life until their six year old daughter is kidnapped; over the course of seven days they begin to uncover secrets about their past that could rip their marriage and lives apart.
I am no pseudo-movie critic so here is the short and sweet version of my opinion of this film.
Usually, my expectations of a low-budget(under 1 million to produce), independent film aren't high. This movie, however, was simply delightful! The interactions between all of the characters were believable--each scene offers a treat for your viewing pleasure.
There's a wonderful mixture of comedy, romance, and drama (not too much drama). Niklas and Ticia have such an amazing on-screen chemistry that keeps you wanting to know what happens next. The foreign driver in the story was a sweet and hilarious touch to me! The writers and director did a marvelous job at story telling, which seems to have become difficult for many to do these days.
I don't think this movie was predictable like others have said in their reviews because it does not end the way that most Romantic Comedies do-- guy comes back to girl and they run to each other for some dramatic embrace. Kiss, kiss, kiss, cue cheesy triumphant theme song, they get busy, they live happily ever after. This movie breaks that mold in a way because you are left to wonder what happens between them which is a sweet agony in a way for a viewer!
See the movie. You'll enjoy it!
