MORE THAN A FILM
Have you ever thought about topics such as the human traffickers for sexual slavery? Sometimes prostitution is not a voluntary thing but we never think about it. This can even lead to sales people. There are many groups that are dedicated to this. It is a very serious problem but it is a reality that we live.
I'll talk about a film that really impresses me and I consider it very good. It's an action movie. It is very famous, it grossed $ 225,461,461 internationally. I think it shows some aspects of life that we do not realize that they are there and that it can happen to anyone least expect.
The film is French, it was released in 2008. It is directed by Pierre Morel, written and co-produced by Luc Besson.
The main characters are:
• Liam Neeson as Bryan Mills.

• Famke Janssen as Lenore.
• Xander Berkeley as Stuart.

It's a great film, from the moment that I saw I loved it. If you didn't already, you have to see it. It shows everything that can get to do a father for his daughter. There is also a second part of the film but I stick with this.
