  1. Based on a true story -- that never happened. That might explain why the film circles and circles its subject but never strikes dramatic pay dirt.

    Powerhouse performances by Liam Neeson and James Nesbit make this an intense, ultimately moving tale.

    The production design is spot-on, but Hirschbiegel tries way too hard to create tension, making every occurrence--a record needle dropping, a car door slamming--an unsubtle potential bomb, fraying your nerves like a cheap horror movie.
