Two men (Eric Martinez, Brenden Whitney) and a woman (Mary Etuk) are found dead in their house, and the forensic report suggests drug overdose, murder and suicide. An injured woman, Mila (Vannessa Vasquez) is also found in the home, and it looks as if she was a hostage ... but when police want to question her the next day in hospital, they find out she's gone ...

It's been a few weeks ago that Mila has been taken hostage by the trio of baddies, just because her car has broken down and she has knocked on the wrong door for help, has been tortured and humiliated, and the trio even killed her own mother (Jill Adler) when she has tried to save her before her very eyes. But while the trio were kidnapping and killing girls on a quite regular basis, she managed to stay alive, as her background in criminal psychology has taught her just the right skills to convince her torturers to leave her alive. But she has made escape attempts aplenty, usually without success, but she has found out something about her captors, something that convinced her to not trust local police.

Mila gone makes her more than just a material witness, it makes her a murder suspect, and detective Salinas (Melissa Mars) insists on being put in charge of tracking her down, also because her partner was killed by a boobietrap when investigating the crime scene. But Salinas has no idea what she has gotten herself into with this assignment, as Mila knows very well how to defend herself - but she's far from the biggest problem here ...

 

Now I have to say one thing up-front, Sorrow is not a movie you can watch without dedicating your full attention to it: It's not chronological but labyrinthine in structure, its flashbacks and flashforwards are not always clearly indicated as such, not everything is explained away eventually, not all plot threads are played out in full, and quite a bit is left open to interpretation ... and all this works for the movie rather than against it, ultimately presenting the viewer with more of a genre puzzle than a straight-forward grindhouse throwback (which the plot as such might suggest), and a puzzle that manages to give great satisfaction when resolved. At the same time it keeps things tense and the viewers on the edge of their seats. All this is thanks to a cleverly written script, a very subtle directorial effort, and great key performances that really bring the characters to life.

Definitely worth a watch!
