  • This movie highlights the difference between the east and west. We will never understand some of the Asian people. Their inhumane attitude to "wrong doers" is hard for me to accept. The acting was excellent.

  • Thoroughly enjoyed this one. I was totally gripped by the credible storyline and the excellent performances - I kept thinking about it for days afterwards.

  • At first I thought that this story had to be based on a real life event, thats how drawn into it I felt.. both girls gave a very moving & real performance which made the viewer connect with empathy to the experience they were going through. Excellent movie.

  • will make sure you dont think about ever being involved with drugs.this is true life and moves along and entertains at the same time
