This Australian hostage suspense-drama about the kidnapping of a Jewish holocaust survivor was made and released almost thirty years after the earlier Australian movie Hostage (1983) [The Christine Maresch story] which was the true story of a woman whose husband eventually reveals to her that he is an active member of the Nazi party.

This is one of those movies that nobody has heard about, it has little or no push from the studio, the actors and actresses are no names, and on the surface it appears to be an obvious plot. But hold the horses, this one will surprise you. The no name actors and actresses are truly superb, the story is original and gripping with many tense and suspenseful scenes, and the emotional connection this movie will evoke is timely and thought provoking.
Bottom-line.....every now and then a little known movie makes the rounds and garners some minor attention and then quietly goes away. This fine film deserves more, it's a sleeper that should be viewed.
