AKA: 3096 Tage
Directed by: Sherry Hormann
Starring: Antonia Campbell-Hughes (Natascha), Amelia Pidgeon (young Natascha), Thure Lindhardt (Wolfgang), Trine Dyrholm (Natascha’s mother)
Country: Germany
Language: English
Runtime: 01:49:59
Genres: Captivity-Kidnapping, Domestic Abuse, Old-Young Relationships, Teen-Childhood, Torture

Plot – Spoilers:
3096 Days is based on the Natascha Kampusch case where a 10 year-old Austrian girl was kidnapped and held in captivity for 8+ long years – 3096 days.

3096 Days will stay with you for a while because it doesn’t attempt to soften any of the blows. And it does this by not taking any obvious side, other than the side your sense of morality reaches out for. The actors are quite brilliant especially the girls – Amelia Pidgeon given her age, and Antonia Campbell-Hughes for her stunning skin-and-bones endeavour that made her convincing as a teenager, despite being over 30 at the time of filming.

Favorite scenes include a monologue by the young Natascha staring into the viewer and also the shame she later feels for experiencing an orgasm.

      Actors and actresses on point. The budget solid. Camera work good. The story is typical. The movie wasn’t boring it kept my interest. My problem with it is that every time she got a beating the movie did not display the emotional and physical pain she endured. I don’t want to come off as sadistic but the audience needed that extra edge. Needed to feel for her and make us want for her escape that much more. We needed to see the bruises, scars, and emotional crying and need to escape her hell. I would have felt so much more anger and sadness for the girl. You can tell the film maker wanted more but upper brass toned it down for a wider audience appeal. That’s a shame because this would have made this movie phenomenal. The girl has the acting chops to pull it off

      They are clearly speaking English. Filmed in Germany dont mean German film.

    Checkout a Movie: Chained 2012 with Vincent D’Onofrio as lead character. You won’t be disappointed.

      I’m glad you liked it! I haven’t seen it in years but I know it’s good. I only remember movies that were good. My ex-wife sat down to watch it (my pick) she couldn’t sit through I knew I had a winner lol. I have so many movies that aren’t well know that I could list. This site is great though

        Okay is this English or German? One time you hear a German accent and other times you hear an English accent. Do they not know people would notice?

    Makes my ass drag. Too long. Filmed in English, not German. No background that I can see of the perp (Czech, anyone), motive? One of the actresses is in fact Danish (don’t have an issue with that but is this English or not? Background of victim does not seem to correspond with the true story. But to each his own.

    Corona Virus is more interesting, yawwwn…

    Weird movie but interesting because sadly there are freaks out there like him. The boredom and loneliness this woman must have endured is unimaginable. The Christmas scene was so bizarre but so very sad. The intelligence this man had to pull this off so strategically and for so long is terrifying. Thankfully she is free now😭

    Very impressive filmmaking with great acting. Her performance was very accurate in regard to the numbing effects that the constant threat of violence produces.
