review by
Mike Haberfelner

Pretty much out of the blue, Emma (Mhairi Calvey) finds herself entrapped in a bunker, and oddly enough with two men she has a history with, Ben (Tyron Ricketts) and Jamie (Martin Kaps). Thing is, the former had been found guilty of raping her, the latter was the only one who spoke in Ben's favour in court. And yet, in order to get out of this predicament, she has to team up with the two. Now it's not that either of them wants her any imminent harm, but their presence alone makes her more than uneasy - and yet she hooks up with them, in order to get out of the bunker and then find her way home through the woods surrounding the bunker. And that's not easy, because not only are they completely lost and their personalities seem to permanently crash, there's also a trio of mercenaries (Anatole Taubman, Victor Alfieri, Pete Riley) on their tale, with the intent of capturing and torturing them. But there's also a bigger question, why were of all people these three thrown together for this bizarre manhunt, chances are nought that it was by mere coincidence - so somebody has to have a sinister plan with them ...

 

As a mere summary, the plot of 3 Lives sounds incredibly far-fetched - but a very clever and well put-together script doesn't make the film feel this way, a script that might follow genre formula to a certain extent but puts an emphasis on character study over violence, yet has all the right action in all the right places. This is of course also helped by a strong directorial effort that gets the most out of its locations and never shakes the feel of unease that's so important for the movie. Plus the small ensemble cast is really solid, making this a pretty awesome movie.
