Roxane Coss (Julianne Moore), a famous American soprano, travels to South America to give a private concert at the birthday party of rich Japanese industrialist Katsumi Hosokawa (Ken Watanabe).

Just as a handsome gathering of local dignitaries convenes at Vice-President Ruben Ochoa's mansion, including French Ambassador Thibault (Christopher Lambert) and his wife, Hosokawa's faithful translator Gen (Ryo Kase), and Russian trade delegate Fyorodov (Olek Krupa), the house is taken over by guerrillas demanding the release of their imprisoned comrades. Their only contact with the outside world is through Red Cross negotiator Messner (Sebastian Koch).

  • 1 star "Very boring, left half way of the movie -__-"
  • 2 stars "This was a very slow moving movie. I take it, based on a real situation but it doesn't translate too well here for action and interest. Julianne Moore is so unbelievable as the opera singer....just didn't go over well. Found myself looking at my watch it was dragging so slowly."
  • 5 stars "Beautiful! Perfect date movie!"
