Trust is not everything
14 September 2012 | by bloguriousSee all my reviews

You don't have to resource to supernatural beliefs in order to make a pact with the devil. In fact, our everyday life is full of suggestions that, when not taken into consideration, might tie us up to a life threatening contract.

"De Verbowing" is a Dutch production that simply tackles the game of trust and how personal vulnerability can get you into irreversible traumas. It's a good thriller that not only entertains but also makes you wonder how much can you trust the people that come into your life. The acting is balanced and the action nicely measured. It's more about how things can get out of hand when decisions are made in a moment of desperation.
