Spurlos – Die Entführung der Alice Creed: Directed by J Blakeson. With Martin Compston, Eddie Marsan, Gemma Arterton. A rich man’s daughter is held captive in an abandoned apartment by two former convicts who abducted her and hold her ransom in exchange for her father’s money.

“Two British men kidnap the daughter of a rich man and hold her prisoner while negotiating a ransom. Itu0026#39;s tightly constructed and the suspense builds amid the changing dynamics of the relationship among the three characters. What keeps it from being a good film, however, is the stupidity of the characters, particularly Alice, the victim, who squanders opportunities to escape because of her idiotic actions. Of course, in these kinds of films, such behavior is used primarily to propel the plot, otherwise the story would end too quickly. Still, itu0026#39;s an impressive feature film debut for writer-director Blakeson and is worth a look.”
