Storyline

During their childhood Hanna and Clarissa were the best of friends. They spent every vacation together with their parents in an old summer house on a small island. Shortly after Hanna's 9th birthday they suddenly lost touch until an unexpected reunion 25 years later. Hanna is now married, has a seven-year-old daughter and is the chief resident physician at a hospital, which is where she meets her old friend who is delivered to the ER after overdosing on sleeping pills. The two women pick up their friendship where they left off and spontaneously decide to spend a few days on the island, just like in the old days. With Hanna's daughter Lea in tow they return to the place where they spent their childhood. When Hanna learns that a playmate of hers from the island's village, disappeared as a child and was never seen or heard from again, she begins to search the past. Something horrible must have happened on the island back then. But the closer Hanna gets to the dark secret, the tighter the... Written by Wüste Film Ost

I loved it!
24 October 2012 | by See all my reviews

Im an Australian traveling around Europe at the moment and I went with some friends to go an see this movie as a sneak preview. I speak a little bit of German but the movie was very well produced and even though there was little dialog (Therefore I could understand most of it) it still came out as a great movie! I highly recommend going to see it, because I was trying to figure out the movie the whole time and then i didn't see the end coming. A really good movie and I definitely recommend going to see it when it comes out, I'm even going to go and see it a second time when its released. This movie though will make most people, apart from the hardened and soulless people out there, jump. There were many points in which the whole cinema jumped and even one young woman had to leave because she was too frightened. Definitely go and watch this movie, highly recommendable. Kudos to the producers! The amount of swearing involved is minimal, and there's nothing too gory, but i wouldn't recommend it for people under 12 unless accompanied by someone who can 'protect' them.

And guys, take your girlfriends, they'll want you to hold them tight during this one!
