A huge fan of Huppert, I searched forever to find this film, and boy was I disappointed. It seems that Isabelle will take any work if she gets to travel to a distant country! And I am used to her playing perverts, whores and psychos, not a missionary. a stretch for my imagination. Furthermore, this is largely a boring shoot-em-up, with heavy sympathy for the Islamic terrorists as polite kidnappers who just need cash.
Worth seeing for Huppert and Mendoza. Interesting direction. Mendoza makes you feel like you are really there. An overwhelming cinematic experience. As a film overall it is pretty unremarkable in the end. Okay to see once for the experience.
