American Jack Washington is hiding in Paris under an assumed name. He also sports a beard to hide his facial traits. One day he finds a job ad in the local paper. The agency interviewing him is a front for a secret organization hired to find him. At the job interview, the interviewers guess his real identity and tell him that he is accepted for the post. The job itself is that of a male companion for billionaire Lewis Gannet who lives in a castle in the Alps at the Swiss-Italian border.

Brilliant and terrifying
12 February 2002 | by (hingham, mass., usa) – See all my reviews

I can see that I am not alone in thinking that this was a superior story, handled very well (except for the very last shot!). The same spooked atmosphere of THE PRISONER pervades; I recommend FRAGMENT OF FEAR for the same what-is-reality take. Anyway, just wonderful. That scene on the yacht! Film noir lives!!
