To get over the separation from his girlfriend, Ben (Morgan Krantz) decides to spend the three day weekend camping along deep in the woods - even though he's not really but out for this. Soon enough, too, Ben comes to the conclusion that camping was not the best idea, as near the location he camps at he witnesses what appears to be a kidnapping, and what's worse, soon enough the kidnappers (Scott MacDonald, Nathan Phillips) and he has to hightail it into the woods. He figures the only way to get out of this is to find out what's going on but he's got nothing but the cellphone and a few notes of the kidnapping victim (Maya Stojan) to go on.

But what is going on? One after the other, this film tells the same story out of the perspectives of all involved, and it soon becomes apparent each of their interpretations of the story differ drastically from all the others to a point where it becomes less and less apparent who's the assailant and who's the victim ...

 

3 Day Weekend is a rather wonderful puzzle of a thriller movie that rather playfully puts thriller elements together to then tearing them apart again with a gusto and often even pretending to contradict itself (which actually is owed to perspective rather than hard fact) and leading the audience astray at pretty much every twist and turn, without ever losing sight of the story itself. And with the dialogue limited to a bare minimum (there's less than 10 lines actually spoken in the movie) things are even more open to interpretation - and intentional confusion of course. But this is not just a mindgame for the sake of it, it's also beautifully filmed with the inpressive landscapes serving as great backdrops, and very dynamically put together to keep the audiences at the edges of their seats, just like any good thriller would. So the result is a very fascinating labyrinth of a story that's very enjoyable to find one's way through.
