Product Description

A successful aerospace engineer finds her world turned upside down in this thriller from first-time director Katarzyna Klimkiewicz. While leading a well-ordered, focused life designing military drones for her Bristol-based employer, 40-something engineer Frankie (Helen McCrory) meets and falls for the charms of French-Algerian student Kahil (Najib Oudghiri), who is 20 years her junior. For all that she is blissfully swept up in her new romance, Frankie's foundations are shaken when she finds herself detained by the security services, who have taken an interest in Kahil. Torn between her feelings for Kahil and the doubts beginning to surface in her mind, Frankie sets out to discover the truth about her lover's motives.

Flying Blind tells the story of Bristol-born, successful, motivated, and sexually attractive forty-something `Frankie' (McCrory), who works for British Aerospace...currently developing Military Drones, for use against targeted enemies of the state. She also part-time lectures at a local university..and it's here that she meets French-Algerian student `Kahil' (Oudghiri), who at 24years old, is just over half her age.

After a very brief period of flirtatiously circling each other.....they become involved in an extremely sexually intense affair, which over the weeks develops into a slightly precarious relationship. There are the initial cultural barriers, and age difference present at the very beginning of the relationship..but such is the rapidness of their attraction to each other, that these are easily put to rest and the relationship seemingly bringing out the best of both parties. Although their relationship worries her protective father (Cranham) who is a retired Concorde engineer, and more importantly quickly brings itself to the attention of Mi5, who confront Frankie, with the suspicion that Kahil may be manipulating her for access to her very confidential work on military Drones.

After presenting Frankie with (probable) reason to be concerned, Frankie begins to question her lovers validity, and she digs deeper to find out more about the lover she admittedly knows very little about....irregularities, begin to surface about Kahil's life, and although no particular discovery is enough to fully sink the relationship, enough self-doubt in the relationship, with the increasing interest from Mi5, begins to call Kahil's motives into question.

Kahil himself is a bunch of contradictions: Handsome, yet yielding physical scars, he's unwilling to explain.....

2.0 out of 5 stars BORING and pointless 6 July 2014
Format:DVD
This was a film which sounded like it had an interesting premise, but could not decide what it wanted to be. There were quite a few sex scenes in it without any nudity, as though they were trying to make an erotic thriller but were foiled by the lead actors having a no nudity clause in their contracts. The plot was really dull and predictable, and the pace was so slow that the film appears to be much longer than it actually is because for the majority of the time nothing happens. It really was not a good use of my time watching it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not for me 13 May 2014

This film never took off for me. Slow story line always thinking that something good would happen but it never did. Wish I hadn't have used a rental on it.
