When ISABELLA mysteriously disappears from a car park her husband, RONNY, becomes obsessed with finding her. In an attempt to stay close to her he even takes a job at the very same car park. It becomes his life. We join the story a year after the key events. Ronny lives alone in a dirty old apartment. He watches the same film on a projector every night. This is a nostalgic reel of 16mm film; memories of Isabella. Every morning, Ronny packs his bags to move on with his life, but he always slams on the brakes as he approaches a picturesque bridge on the edge of town, where he had proposed to Isabella. Everyday he returns to the car park to continue his quest. Each night Ronny stands in the very spot Isabella went missing from and tries to retrace his own movements and recap on any clues. One night, a prostitute is attacked in the car park and bundled into the boot of a car. ...Written by

I like movies that make me think, movies that keep me guessing and movies that keep me talking and thinking about it for days. Emulsion did it all. Sam Heughan did an amazing job as Ronnie Maze and deftly carried the film from beginning to end. The reason I gave it 8 out of 10 was because the same, unfortunately, couldn't be said for some of the supporting cast. Maybe it was just the strength of Heughan's acting that made the others feel weak by comparison...IDK. Maybe they were just weak. Another review elsewhere mentioned the editing being choppy but I never saw this as an issue but rather lending itself to the edginess of the film. The plot was extremely unique and full of twists and turns that reminded me of some of the Hitchcock films I've seen. It's not quite a psychological thriller, not quite a mystery, not quite a love story but more than a drama. Well done and definitely worth the price of a ticket!
