This is a brilliant movie, and if you don't usually like subtitles don't let that put you off, its easy to keep up with them, and not all the action is dialogue driven, there's more than enough scenes... Read morewhere no talking is needed to get the point across, and I think most viewers will be too caught up in the movie to notice subs after a while. The concept of the movie is simple enough, an average family is torn apart when the mother is jailed for a murder she did not commit, and when all the legal avenues fail the husband refuses to leave his wife to carry out the sentence and instead goes head long into a plan to help her to escape. I found myself sitting further and further on the edge of my seat as the film progressed, the tension in the later part of the film is so tight you cant help but sit there fingers crossed hoping for a good outcome. Highly recommended if you love suspense and drama.
