John Lake (Rossif Sutherland) is a doctor working for an NGO in Laoswhen he gets told to take some time off after a bit of 'stress' in thework place. So he heads to a peaceful part of the country for some 'rand r'. Then he sees a sexual assault taking place between a touristand a local girl. He intervenes – and it does not take very long forthings to go very bad, very quickly.

Now that is the synopsis and to say anymore would be a bit of a plotspoiler, however this is a thriller so you know that there is going tobe a lot more to this than just the above. And it manages the thrillerpart really well; the acting is all very good too as is the direction.

This is one of those films that goes for down to earth realism ratherthan sensationalism and that helps it achieve the necessary level ofauthenticity that means that I, for one, was able to empathise with thecharacters and engage more deeply. This is one of those films that seemto have slipped by unnoticed, which is a pity as this is one that isvery much worth checking out.

"Your face. What happened? I was very drunk last night. I was riding abicycle, and I fell."

Can you imagine this. One moment you're standing in an operating roomamputating someones leg with a saw. The other moment you're runninglike a madman through Laos trying to outrun the authorities. Thishappens to John Lake (Rossif Sutherland), a hard-working doctor, who'ssent on a well-deserved holiday after a discussion with the headdoctor. At his destination (It surely isn't a five star all-inclusiveresort) he's having a few drinks one evening, accompanied by an overfriendly bartender. On his way to his humble hut he witnesses anassault on a local girl by a drunken, noisy Australian. And in a splitsecond he makes the wrong decision. Before he knows it, he is afugitive who's wanted for murdering the son of an Australian Senatorand raping a native girl.

The result is an intense manhunt for the guilty western doctor by thelocal police. And he's guilty. That's a fact. The only thing John hasin mind, is not to go on trial in Laos itself. "River" is a film inwhich desperation, fear and guilt are palpable presence. John, sweaty,bloodied and bruised, is constantly on the run. A boat ride with alocal resident. A lift from a couple dodgy looking men. A bus tripwhich happens to be controlled by a police patrol. It doesn't matter inwhat way he travels, as long as he stays out of the hands of theauthorities and manages to reach a US Embassy. He even has to make acertain decision in the end, that goes against his moral principles.The result of this nerve-racking race, is that the film never pausesfor a moment. The pace is blistering (probably appropriate for theclimate there) fast and exhilarating.

Rossif Sutherland (son of Donald and brother of Keifer Sutherland) actsconvincingly. You can see the desperation and fear on his face. Achaotic flight where he relies entirely on his survival instinct. Theintensity is unbearable and because of the sultry environment it's asif you can smell John's pungent body odor in your living room. Althoughthe story is fairly straightforward and obvious, the ending is stillsurprising. Let me put it this way. It has a high "Oh come on" content.A bit against the flow compared to the rest of the movie. I guess thesense for justice presented itself to John suddenly. It's probably apersonal trait. John can't resist to do good for others over and overagain.

2.3 of 10. Nothing like a river in its style. Though the title and thestory do eventually connect, that's about the only connection you feelfrom this. The thrills/suspense all feel artificial, forced withoutanything to be of a concern. The running looks more like jogging.

Maybe the lead actor's connection to a Hollywood star is what gets thissome free publicity, but it's not the story or his acting. This wouldbe better setup as a tragic comedy about a naive American in a foreigncountry, but nobody involved seems to recognize it and you end up witha film taking its actors far too seriously.

I wouldn't recommend this on any level. It tries to provide somemeaningful commentary on international problems, but even that feelsconcocted within this film.
