During their childhood Hanna and Clarissa were the best of friends. They spent every vacation together with their parents in an old summer house on a small island. Shortly after Hanna's 9th birthday they suddenly lost touch until an unexpected reunion 25 years later. Hanna is now married, has a seven-year-old daughter and is the chief resident physician at a hospital, which is where she meets her old friend who is delivered to the ER after overdosing on sleeping pills. The two women pick up their friendship where they left off and spontaneously decide to spend a few days on the island, just like in the old days. With Hanna's daughter Lea in tow they return to the place where they spent their childhood. When Hanna learns that a playmate of hers from the island's village, disappeared as a child and was never seen or heard from again, she begins to search the past. Something horrible must have happened on the island back then. But the closer Hanna gets to the dark secret, the tighter the... Written by Wüste Film Ost

Dark and suspenseful
6 March 2013 | by mario_cSee all my reviews

It's a dark suspense thriller about two women which were best friends when they were kids and now they meet again, passed all these years. As child they used to spend some holidays in a small isolated island near the mainland, and now they meet again they decide to spend some days there one more time, to remember the old days…Everything goes fine until one of them see a photo where there're both of them and one third little girl she didn't remember… Maria!

It's atmospheric, dark, in a mood of a ghost story, and it has suspense until the end, where there's a nice twist in the plot. The setting and the soundtrack are quite good too in order to create a dark and atmospheric story. I appreciated it mostly because of the ambiance created. I score it 8/10.
