This was a surprisingly very good film. The acting and storyline gradually builds to a boil while the antagonist straddles the line of right and wrong so seamlessly at times it becomes hard to define which is which.

Boring , maybe some twisted minded chess players would like it…. I give it 1/10 because it’s just W E A K for captivity, and serial killer category

Anyway thanks for your work effed up team!

I never got why people give movies 1/10 stars? Given it’s production, interesting plot and occasional great acting should warrant it at least a 6/10.

Yep, 1/10 is for unfinished, grade F student films with no coherent narrative, shitty shoehorned-in political messaging and Nokia 3310 cinematography. People grading using a binary scale (everything is either fantastic 10/10 or garbage 0/10) is why IMDb had to implement a weight into the scoring algorithm, where users who give out a lot of 1s and 10s (and generally outlying scores) have their scores count for a smaller part of the overall rating.

I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. It is refreshing to stumble upon a movie with an original storyline, in my opinion. Thank you EUM for delivering the goodies once again in your indomitable style.

Yes, this is a must-see. Psychological torture and everybody is mental. Loved it.

Very interesting film, truly a work of art, the way one mans psychosis is transferred into another mans mind is so well executed in the film. The way it was done visually through chess and all coming together in the end for the ultimate game is beautiful.

Captivity was merited as soon as he invited himself into a stranger’s home… Maude was quintessentially charming, Michelle was a firecracker

Wow! Astonishingly good film from start to finish! Definitely inspired by the chess novella by Stefan Zweig. The only thing that didn’t make sense to me was how Michelles (boy?)-friend got the tape, other than that I am genuinely pleased with this film.
Still wonder what the red spot on the wall was all about..
5/5 from me.

Thank you so much for this film and your effort in general, admins!

A little boy found the tape outside the house. That boy lost it in the park. Michelle’s boy/friend’s little brother found the tape while playing outside in that park and brought it home. The little brother left it on the counter next to his toys and the boy/friend took it thinking it was his.

Movie is based on Patrick Senécal’s book with the same title. Not sure if he was inspired by Zweig.

A excellent movie I keep returning to. The way the madness is transferred onto the protagonist is brilliant with the ending being the best part, with Yannick having gone and stayed insane.
