On his escape from gunshots, he meets Bea, an attractive young woman, who apparently is lost as well. Suspicious of each other, they join forces to run away through the forest, unprotected, cold, hunted...Written by
And I'm not talking about the movie, but about the main character. I'm not sure if that was the intention. Of course he is portrayed as a coward. But all his actions and of course his back story lead to the fact that you most likely will hate his guts. Or at least I did, I heard from others that they didn't mind that much or didn't really bother to think about it.
The theme (and a bit of a surprise if you will), is the big selling point of the movie. But it only works the first time you watch it. I "had" to watch it a second time, when they showed it at the Fright Fest in London (I had watched it earlier on DVD). I have to admit, that I only realized how much I hated the main guy, when I watched the movie the second time. So maybe you should only watch this movie once and be done with it. It's more than good enough for one watch :o)
