Storyline

Vacationing in Morocco, a young couple, Daniel and Laura, rent a car for a day trip into the Moroccan desert. On a whim, they decide to leave the main road and take off across the forbidden wasteland on an adventurous, wild ride. However, what starts out as a little side trip rapidly turns into a major nightmare. Not only do they get hopelessly lost, but their car breaks down, forcing the despairing couple to continue on foot. After several days of torturous plodding through the unforgiving heat, they awake one morning to find a strange man watching them -- with their repaired car off to one side. Overjoyed at their rescue, Daniel and Laura quickly agree to the mysterious man's offer to guide them back to the road on his motorcycle. With time however, it seems like he's bringing them anywhere else but back. While Daniel's suspicions of the secretive man's motives grow, Laura is slowly finding herself attracted to the stranger. Soon, overcome by a raging sense of helplessness and ... Written by Anonymous

a couples'trip in the desert ends in a drama
2 July 2007 | by pepimakaSee all my reviews

This movie is excellent. I was impressed for a few days after I watched this movie. The way the story is told is great, a lot of tension, very detailed, deep feelings like fear, doubt, hate. The actors are great. It is a lot of fun to watch them, especially because they don't talk a lot, it's just their faces and how they look. It is a very silent film, all sounds in the movie are used in a very sensitive way. We can feel the silence of the desert, the heat and the no way out feeling. The psycho-trip in the ghost city is just awesome. Great editing and camera-work. All shots seem to make sense. This film is really unusual, because it's just about three characters in the desert and it actually doesn't happen a lot, but it is very exciting.
