In New York, Janice Templeton is happily married with the executive Bill Templeton and they live in a comfortable and fancy apartment with their eleven year-old daughter Ivy. One day, Janice is stalked by a weirdo and she tells her husband. Soon the stranger contacts them and invites the couple to meet him in a restaurant. Elliot Hoover tells to Janice and Bill that his daughter Audrey Rose died eleven years ago burned in a car crash and her soul would have reincarnated in Ivy's body. Bill and Janice believe that Elliot is nuts and Bill tells his lawyer to get a restraining order against Elliot. However, Ivy has dreadful nightmares and only Elliot is capable to calm her down. When Elliot abducts Ivy, Bill and Janice go to the court to arrest him. But Elliot wants to prove that Ivy and Audrey Rose are the same soul. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Trivia

According to the book, "The Case for Reincarnation" by Joe Fisher, the screenplay for "Audrey Rose" was inspired by an actual incident in author De Felitta's life. Hearing expert ragtime piano coming from his family's music room, he was astonished to discover it was being produced by his six-year-old son, who had never had a music lesson. "My fingers are doing it by themselves, Daddy!", the boy said. "Isn't it wonderful?" The experience set him to contemplating the possibility of reincarnation. See more »

A real snooze
1 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A husband and wife (John Beck, Marsha Mason) have a loving 12 year old girl (Susan Swift). However she keeps having strange nightmares that won't stop. They are visited by a strange man (Anthony Hopkins) who tells them the spirit of of his dead daughter Audrey lives in their little girl.

The book of this came out in the mid 1970s. It was a huge hit and sparked off an interest in reincarnation. It was a long (over 400 or 500 pages) but engrossing read. For some reason Hollywood took its sweet time making this. By the time this was released there was no interest and this film failed almost immediately. Many people said it was made and released too late. To be honest though, this film isn't very good at all.

The film is well-directed by Robert Wise and it looks fantastic (the Templeton's apartment alone is jaw-dropping) but there are numerous things wrong here. The script is simply dull. It's all talk talk talk--just saying the same things over and over again. This movie moves very slowly. The acting doesn't help. Beck is dull and lifeless. Swift isn't good either but her role WAS difficult and she was only 13. Even Hopkins (a GREAT actor) is terrible. His reaction to seeing Ivy running around screaming as Audrey was just so bad! Only Mason (a very underrated actress) gives a very good credible performance. Basically the film is too long, unfocused and dull. Mason's good performance can't save this. This still remains an unknown film for good reason! Read the book instead.
