Here it is you have a cop crossing the line , a father who seeks revenge, and a grand father who is pissed off that his grand daughter is dead, in a series of murders, and yes you know it they have a main suspect a teacher who teaches religion who was arrested and released due to some gaffe from the police, and you have a great crime story.
This great Israeli thriller starts with 3 kids who plays hide and seeks in the woods by an abandoned building, the scene plays out in slow motion everybody hides and one kids stays behind and counts, he finds everybody but one girl goes missing her red shoe is found. The title of the film is seen out on the roof a nice touch her I love that one. You get that very loud music like huffing and puffing and pounding like a big bad woof is coming. This film is dark and has black comedy in it , it gets right to it the next shot you see is a man carried out by 3 police dudes they sit him in the chair and say to him” we know you did it where is she?” that sets the tone of the film right there. There is more than a few scenes that are funny and tense at the same time. There is a scene where the a man is buying the house and tells the real estates agent to scream of her top of her lungs to see if he will hear her upstairs the house is secluded in the woods. In an other words you think you know what is going but this film will keep you guessing. The cinematography is simple but yet beautiful and dark at times. The suspect says he didn’t do it you actually do not know if he did or not. But the cop is positive that he did it. It is well played by the actors, their performance are awesome. The thing is what would you do if that was your daughter how far will you go?
