The fates of an apparently random group of strangers who each come into contact with a mysterious figure who they believe possesses the power to grant any wish, in return for which they must carry out a task he assigns them. An adaptation of the 2010 American TV series, The Booth at the End.
- "This thought-provoking story about the limits of human morality raises questions about how far people will go to get what they want. "
- "Following the overwhelming success of Perfect Strangers, Paolo Genovese was in a position to do something daring and that he did, pulling an ambitious and metaphorical film out of his hat."
- "The Place is not exactly a thriller per se, but it turns a couple of twists that are real game-changers. The Place ... is a prime example of super-slick, ultra-grabby filmmaking. Very highly recommended."
