Une Prière Avant L'aube

NUGA's rating of the film A Prayer Before Dawn

Serviceable prison movie, not unlike the "Locked up above" tv series. Use of non-actors is a bold but largely correct move. The tone of the movie and overall reality of the Bangkok Hilton is entirely dependent on the act's index, serving only for pathos, more or less. The final scene is cheesy af, but the final non-twist twist was actually kinda great.
