  1. FISCHER's rating of the film Rapt

    Respectant scrupuleusement les contours et les méandres de l'affaire Empain qui défraya la chronique judiciaire des premiers mois de l'année 1978, Lucas Belvaux nous propose un percutant thriller psychologique doublé d'une incisive dénonciation de l'environnement médiatique et du milieu des affaires, plus préoccupés par les oripeaux de la respectabilité et la manipulation de l'opinion. www.cinefiches.com

  2. Michael Zyx MH Claes's rating of the film Rapt

    Le Baron EMPAIN et le syndrome de Stockholm.

  3. MrPinky's rating of the film Rapt

    Satisfying crime thriller that focused on a few key characterizations relating to the protagonist's fall from grace. Thankfully didn't rely on an obtrusive score; taking a lighter (and more effective) hand musically.

  4. Max_Hydr0's rating of the film Rapt

    Bad habits prove to be the apparent undoing of corporate chairman Stanislav Graff. A taught waiting game of tense reciprocity as the experienced captors negotiate with police for the ransom demand. Even government ministers are drawn into the brewing scandal. Then, inextricably, following two months of captivity the kidnappers release their prisoner. So, what is really going on in this well-crafted mystery?

  5. Vinod Narayan's rating of the film Rapt

    What are you worth…? What does the world think you are worth….? but the biggest questions are what do your kidnappers think you are worth….? and How much will the outside world pay to get you back….? Rapt is not an action film that will see police freeing a hostage after some bloodied violence… it is more cerebral and social in its core…

  6. JCMiami's rating of the film Rapt

    Well acted, elegantly told story about a kidnapping of a member of the French elite and the complications his personal life brings to its resolution. Unfolding in unpredictable turns, calling to question and exposing the various victim's values along the way.

  7. sedmacedo's rating of the film Rapt

    just pretty but hella bureaucratic

  8. klofter's rating of the film Rapt

    Brilliant in places but ultimately a letdown. The film really gathers steam after Attal's character gets released but despite its running time the movie remains at surface level at all times. Melville's influence is obvious but most of the performances are pretty wooden. An uneven affair at best...

  9. Jim Cee's rating of the film Rapt

    Proof that all immediate human concerns are for the self.

  10. Tigrão's rating of the film Rapt

    Could have been fantastic, but the film lacked a bit of richness. Still pretty good.

  11. MATTEO BITTANTI's rating of the film Rapt

    Calypso. That's all I have to say.

  12. Daniel S.'s rating of the film Rapt

    Loosely based on the kidnapping of the French industrialist Baron Empain in 1978, RAPT was a nominee in the 2009 César awards' best film category. I was slightly disappointed by Lucas Belvaux's last movie but I was maybe expecting too much after Trilogy, Belvaux's indisputable masterpiece. Recommended though because of its cold as ice mood.
