Wonderful scenery, enough to make me consider going to Moldova this summer.

…. And that pretty much sums it up. The rest of the film is just plain boring. Nothing happens, no one talks, no one does anything remotely interesting. It’s just dull. And tedious. And redundant. And boring. And dull.

A teenager gets kidnapped by a couple in their 30s. The desperation is almost tangible, as is the increased doubt in one of the culprits. Young doesn’t shy away from being graphic, without for that matter being gory. There is a deus ex machinaish ending and a Silence of the lambs moment that the movie could have done without, and I would have appreciated it much more had the victim had more time to actually be the one to sow discord between her kidnappers.
