Storyline

In New York, Janice Templeton is happily married to 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 afterwards the stranger contacts them and invites the couple to meet him in a restaurant. Elliot Hoover tells Janice and Bill that his daughter Audrey Rose died eleven years ago, burned in a car crash, and her soul has been 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 able to calm her down. When Elliot abducts Ivy, Bill and Janice go to court to have him arrested. But Elliot wants to prove that Ivy and Audrey Rose are the same soul. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Marsha Mason terrific as emotional center in off-beat reincarnation thriller.

As in most of Marsha Mason's films, she is the entire emotional center. Her writers and directors rarely developed the male characters around her beyond sticks of wood and the actors playing them (with a few notable exceptions) did not attempt to leaf out. Here she gives a terrific performance as a mother whose child may or may not be the reincarnation of a soul lost in a tragic accident. John Beck as her husband has one emotion, barely concealed rage, and even the young Anthony Hopkins registers only one - benevolent concern. Miss Mason's face registers every nuance of intelligence and feeling within the character. She excels in a very long sequence in the middle of the film where her daughter runs amok, is finally calmed by Hopkins' character, is followed by an emotional interaction between Hopkins and herself and ends with her violent railing at her husband's disbelief and ineffectiveness. This is built so carefully that despite the numerous takes it must have occasioned she is never out of sync with the slow registering of terror/confusion/slow belief in the truth of the reincarnation theory. It should be removed and presented to acting classes. Here she undergoes trauma - physical, emotional and spiritual - and all the while she is thinking, processing, feeling - and we think and feel with her.

The plot and the film itself are not outstanding and the resolution is a let down, but it's Miss Mason who holds the film together and makes it a memorable experience.
