Tycoon grandpa La Foret revives his family's traditional Christmas gathering at the lodge Claire manages for him, five years after it ceased with the mysterious lake drowning of his daughter Anne. But it's a one-off, as he has terminal cancer. The traditional treasure-hunt will now designate his sole major heir. The relatives can set aside their mutual conflicts and team up, or waste their chances. Grandpa dies during the game time, but Sergio Boniti, his Venetian new personal assistant, is authorized to supervise the game before the professionals arrive. However Anne's death haunts the game, which already has her memory as theme. Written by KGF Vissers

Utterly Devoid of anything pleasurable
15 December 2011 | by caigedSee all my reviews

This is hands down the worst TV movie I have ever seen and it's bad even for TV movie standards. There is absolutely nothing good that comes from watching this movie.

The plot's supposed to be a mystery, but the only mystery that viewers need to solve is how a bad story can see the light of TV day! The story follows a cantankerous old man who gathers his family on an island, the scene of his daughter's death five years ago. Dear old Daddy is fond of making his family play out some weird Christmas puzzle game. He decides to bequeath his wealth to the person who can solve the puzzle and this kicks off the movie.

Each character representing the extended family has a slight checkered history, all apart from the nice girl next door, goody two shoes, puzzle expert grand daughter. Sadly, there is nothing interesting about any of the characters, all of whom are absorbed in themselves. What makes things worse is that once the puzzle game starts no one does anything. Instead the characters sit around, either moping, drinking themselves into a stupor or trying to have sex on the kitchen top. The mystery is finally solved by some inane bumbling and blind luck and is not even worth revealing.

Aside from the super poor plot, the acting is way below par. No one makes an effort to rise above the story and no one character really tries to take the center stage, even the Nancy Drew wannabe granddaughter.

This is a definite ignore, unless you happen to know of the cast members other roles and are big fans.
