A tight thriller set in a new apartment block by the sea in Holland. The film concerns the relationships between a doctor who runs a practice in the block, one of her patients and one of the residents. To give more of the plot away would destroy the enjoyment to be had from from this film. Particularly well portrayed is the sexual tension which exists between two of these characters and the way it erupts into sometimes consensual and sometimes non-consensual violence. The combination of fear and desire is palpable, and portrayed in a way Hollywood could never accept. The conclusion is seemingly obvious and yet somehow we refuse to believe it until the very end. A very nicely directed, tight thriller. The version I saw was Dutch with English subtitles. It would probably lose a fair bit if it were dubbed into American English.
