A married couple moves to France together with their two children. Their world is torn apart when the children go missing and it transpires they have been kidnapped. In a frantic struggle to recover them alive and well, the couples lives begin to fall apart at the seams as Jill's mental state deteriorates and Philip struggles to make sense of what is happening to them.
I'm not sure how this film crept onto my list and I wish it hadn't. It's worse than I can describe. Pointless, aimless, pretentious, meaningless, boring are words that come to mind. I gave up after 45 mins but it was going absolutely nowhere. How it ever got to be made is a mystery. René Clément is now on my list of directors to avoid at all costs.
