“With lies you may go ahead in the world but you may never go back.”
An American couple is on Trans-Siberian train journey from Beijing to Moscow. On their way they share their compartment with a young couple with whom they form quick bonding. At one of stopover the husband fails to pick up the train and soon the wife traps in a journey with murder, guilt and drug trafficking in the presence of smart cop. The film is an average thriller with fine performances of Emily Mortimer as tormented wife and Ben Kingsley as Russian cop, again an impressive act. The first half is quite slow and dramatic in parts but from the second half it sets thrill with tension rolling between a smart cop and the protagonist. Not a quite suspense film but a tense crime thriller where an innocent trapped in a drug trafficking tries to hide her crime under panic. Don’t digest the end; quite Hollywood!!!
