The movie takes place in 2001 but when Lucia's colleagues talk to the police about her, a computer monitor clearly shows the Microsoft Windows Aero interface which wasn't available until Windows Vista was released in 2006. The screen, however, looks more like Windows 7 which did not release before 2009. See more »

True story told sober but chillingly.
9 April 2014 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

This movie tells the true story of a nurse who was innocently accused of being a serial killer of helpless patients. We see the machinery that leads to her conviction, not only motivated by an honest search for truth, but also by vanity an opportunism. We see how the main character and her relatives suffer under her being imprisoned and being falsely accused. We see how even hard evidence of her innocence is put aside in something like a mass-hysteria. And we see how, after years of struggle, the accused is finally set free. This case got such great attention in Dutch media that everyone knows the outcome, yet the movie is exciting and engaging. Everything is filmed in a sober, modest fashion, the drama in the movie coming mainly from the chilling story itself and not from extra fancy plot lines or effects. And of course some intense acting, especially by the main character, who withstood the temptation to play a 'nice' woman, but instead portrays a woman that's not easily likable at first. That Lucia grows on you, and in the end has all the viewers sympathy (or at least all mine) is a beautiful achievement.
