Based On The Shocking True Story Of
The Most Bizarre Terrorist Act Of Our Time!
They locked a bomb around her neck. It will be detonated in 84 minutes. The ransom demand is impossible. The alternative is unthinkable.
In 2000, a group of masked men invaded the home of a poor family in rural Columbia. They then attached a bomb encased in PVC-1 tubing around the mother s neck and demanded 15 million pesos. The family would be told by phone where to bring the money. If the ransom were not delivered according to exact instructions, the collar bomb would be detonated. Greek/Columbian writer/director Spiro Stathoulopoulos films the story of this harrowing ordeal in one unbroken take for an unprecedented achievement in real-time suspense that stunned audiences at the Cannes Film Festival. PVC-1 is an amazing nail-biter and a complete miracle, raved Latino Review. You won t see a better thriller from Hollywood this year!

That being said, this isn't a very good movie. A farming family is set upon by bad guys demanding large sums of cash. The farmer says they don't have it so said bad guys proceed to put a PVC collar, containing a bomb, around the wife's neck and say they'll be back for the cash in some certain amount of time. The farmer, wife and daughter proceed to call the officials and go to meet them to get the bomb diffused.
Though this is a clever exercise it is unnecessary and the story could have been handled better using more conventional film making methods. The action and dialogue are sparse and there seemed to be too many times where the camera would pull away from the action only to return again. It felt as though they were stretching the clock. There was one scene where time was taken out so the victim could relieve herself. All this did was pad the clock. And though there were a couple of tense moments, much more tension could have been created with real editing.
The ending was also pretty terrible. I'm not arguing what happens there, merely the way in which it was handled. I got a decent enough taste for the lead characters but it made me want to know more. All it did was drive home the point that this would have been better with a more traditional approach.
