Alternate Versions

A copy of the film was given away on DVD by the UK Mail On Sunday newspaper. However this version was considerably edited and missing most of the violent scenes. As the BBFC have never cut the film it appears that this version has come from a pre-cut or TV print. See more »

User Reviews

I found every moment of this film interesting and thought provoking.
12 April 2000 | by chemicheSee all my reviews

This is a film about modern day slavery and slave trade. At the same time it is a tale about love and how a person would go to all lengths to get back their loved one. Inter-racial marriage may be a touchy issue for some, but I found that it worked perfectly here. Dr. Anansa (a black woman) is kidnapped, and her husband ( a white man) spares nothing to get her back). When I watched the horrors that the captives endured it reminded me of the horrors that African captives endured over the centuries. This film brought out my emotions as I despised the human injustices portrayed. At the same time I could feel the love that the Linderby's had.
