||The current wave of kidnappings in Latin America inspired this tense suspense drama which takes place in Venezuela. A wealthy young couple are kidnapped by three men demanding a $20,000 ransom for their release, and have just 2 hours to get it. Rated R (2005). Length 1hr. 27 mins
Director Jonathan Jakubowicz's cinematic style in this movie is a translation of the way he perceived reality while being held hostage himself 45 minutes with a gun under his nose.
Nominated for Best Foreign Film in the British Independent Film Awards 2005. This was the first movie from Venezuela to be distributed internationally.
