True story, based on the kidnapping of Gerrit Jan Heijn, CEO of the Dutch Ahold Supermarket Holding. On September 9, 1987, Heijn was kidnapped and killed on the same day by Ferdi Elsas, an unemployed engineer. Elsas, however, demanded ransom money from the victim's family, thereby fuelling their hopes that Heijn was still alive for several weeks. The family paid the ransom, but Elsas did not respond to any of their subsequent pleas to return the victim safely. Elsas was arrested about seven months later when he was caught spending some of the ransom money; he admitted to the kidnapping and murder, and told the Police where the body was buried. He was sentenced to twenty years in prison. Released in 2001, he moved to a small town with his wife. On August 3, 2009, he was riding his bicycle and failed to give right of way to a digger, which ran him over, leading to his death on the same day. See more »

the story of this movie is not that big deal, you see a lot of movies like these all around the world, but, the impressive acting skills of William Dafoe and Mirren, that what gave this movie a taste.
The story was predictable, although the ending was surprising a little bet, I expected something different.
What i loved most about the movie was the acting, William Dafoe was really into the character, he played well, and i was impressed.
Also Mirren Played such a wonderful role, I liked the way she was cool and all quiet, you didn't see her fall apart at the end when she gets the bad news, wonderful performance she did, i think it's the best role she ever played.
