My thoughts ...
-- Without giving the plot away, I thought the opening scene was very well done! I could not even tell what to expect next ... * well, I do NOT read synopsis * ... am I too gullible? ... For a moment, I even wondered if it was a story about child adoption ... hiaks hiaks hiaks ...
-- Although the film did not break any novel ground (in terms of characterization), I have to admit that as a thriller, I thought it was rather engaging and gripping ... ... good job ...
-- The credit in part goes to the great cast ... Jan Decleir and Koen de Bouw deserve mention!
-- Beyond the obvious plot of "memory loss" ... there is a more thought provoking question ... is the story just about ones memory or a nation's memory?
As a thriller, it is gripping enough ... so, I recommend it.
