While traveling to Morocco to initiate a food program of his own to help poor kids, the Dutch Martijn is kidnapped by a group of terrorists and his guide Gavin is executed in cold blood in front of him. Along the days, Martijn is tortured by a Muslin man and Aicha and looses four fingers. In the end, the truth about his travel is finally disclosed.Written by

When Martijn flails around trying to get free he bends one of the chair legs. Later when Aicha helps him up, the chair is no longer damaged. See more »
At a certain point the torturers claim that the cut off fingers could still be sewed back on by a good doctor. But that's more than 24 hours after the first finger, and thus impossible. The storing on ice is not very helpful either: the frost would damage the fingers after a short while. See more »

There are so many films out there that i guess the ending or work out the twist. This wasn't one of them. This film, if given the chance, is edge of the seat stuff for a proper film fan. I tried to guess the twist many times and was way off every time. It does start slow but give it a chance, it will drag you in and leave you guessing. The brilliant performances from phillipe and fishburne shine through. If you want fast pace action and explosions this film isn't for you but if you enjoy a film that makes you think and guess, watch it. I give this film 8 out of 10 for the simple fact that its different and that you will NOT guess the ending.
