Based on real life events. 10 years old Austrian girl, Natascha Kampusch was kidnapped on March 03, 1998, on her way to school. She spent 8 and a half years under strict captivity by her kidnapper, and managed to survive one of the cruelest experiences a child should never have.Written by
This true story that many have heard of in the news is realistically brought to the screen in this well made and shocking movie.
A 10 year old Austrian girl is kidnapped for 8 years and kept imprisoned in a small basement room for much of the time.
The actress Antonia Campbell Hughes looks frighteningly thin. The real person was kept on an almost starvation diet for years. The Danish actor who plays the kidnapper is good too - he doesn't act too obviously crazy.
It's unimaginable that she survived but the thing that makes watching the painful story bearable is to know she escaped.
