Do Not Disturb (1999) is a thrilling movie directed by Dick Maas, starring William Hurt, Jennifer Tilly, and Francesca Brown. The plot revolves around the Hagerman family, who own a luxury hotel in Amsterdam, and the events that occur when a guest is accidentally killed in one of their rooms. The movie takes us on a journey through the chaotic aftermath of a fatal accident that sets off a chain of events that leaves the Hagermans struggling to keep their hotel afloat. Hurt plays Walter, the patriarch of the family, who is devastated by the news of the accident and is determined to protect his family's reputation at any cost. Tilly plays her role as Anna, Walter's wife and business partner, who is initially hesitant to go along with Walter's plan to cover up the incident.

As the story unfolds, we see that the Hagermans are not the only ones with secrets to keep. A young woman named Tala (Brown) is staying at the hotel and quickly becomes entangled in the Hagerman's web of lies. As the only witness to the accident, Tala finds herself in danger as both the police and the Hagermans try to silence her.

The tension in Do Not Disturb is palpable from start to finish, as the Hagermans attempt to navigate their way through a web of lies and deceit. Hurt gives a powerful performance as Walter, a man willing to do anything to protect his family's legacy. Tilly is equally impressive as Anna, torn between her loyalty to her husband and her own conscience. Brown brings a vulnerability to her role as Tala, a young woman caught in the middle of a dangerous game.

The cinematography in the movie is excellent, with the hotel itself playing a crucial role in the story. The elegant and sometimes eerie interiors of the hotel add to the tension of the movie. The direction by Maas is top-notch, with the pacing of the film keeping audiences engaged and on the edge of their seats.

One of the most impressive aspects of Do Not Disturb is its ability to keep the audience guessing. The twists and turns of the plot come fast and furious, with the ultimate outcome remaining uncertain until the very end. Additionally, the movie succeeds in its portrayal of the powerful and desperate lengths people will go to in order to protect themselves and the ones they love.

Though Do Not Disturb did not receive widespread acclaim upon its release, it is a movie that deserves a closer look. The performances are strong, the plot is engaging, and the tension is palpable. This is a movie that will keep you on the edge of your seat, unraveling a story full of secrets and lies until the very end.
