Paul Conroy, a truck driver based in Iraq, is attacked and wakes up to find himself tightly enclosed in a pitch-dark space. Using his lighter he discovers that he’s buried alive in a wooden coffin.

That’s not a new scenario (remember ‘The Vanishing’ by George Sluizer), but in this case you – the viewer – are also locked up between the same planks. The world is limited to what you can see, feel and hear. The ingenious execution makes Buried into a claustrophobic and blood-chilling thriller.

The movie won last year’s prize for the Best European Fantastic Film
