ID:A (Foreign Film – Danish Thriller)
A woman wakes up on a riverbank clutching a duffel bag containing millions of Euros. Ordinarily waking up to such riches would be wonderful but this woman doesn’t know where she is, where the money came from or who she is. She manages to get to a town and book a room where she is able to figure out she is in France, she was recently injured and stitched up by a professional and while she speaks French she isn’t a native speaker. So begins her journey to discover herself and her past.
The main character’s name is Ida but the title of the film is an abbreviation for Identity: Anonymous. Every time you think you know the whole story something else happens and the plot does a complete 180 about halfway through the film. Reviews compared it to a Hitchcock thriller and I agree. I’m sitting here typing and wanting to say things that I simply can’t without giving one of the twists away. Intrigue, violence and revenge come together to make a dark thriller that ends with justice, at least in my mind, being served.
