"Bruno Goes On A Romantic Escapade!"

Ah the things a person can do for love!  This film tells of a young man Bruno who takes passengers of a school bus as hostages in order to see his girlfriend.  He may have taken an easier way without all the hassles but I guess it was his weird way of being acknowledged and seen as a somebody, not just a nobody, not only to his girlfriend but to the world as well.  Bruno's not the bad guy type, he's fond of children but he has that inner demon that controls him to make drastic decisions.  The movie was engrossing to watch and the acting portrayals were quite okay especially the teacher who was also among the hostages, Kristin Scott Thomas, she was like the mother hen who was calm and very responsible, even during such a stressful time.  Yvan Attal as Bruno was also a stand-out for his character, that type of person with a troubled personality and who tends to be fickle-minded. This was quite interesting to watch for me since I found the premise quite out of the way, do check this out!
