Goofs

Approximately 71 minutes into the movie, when Heir Bruckner (Warren Clarke) is driving his daughter, Christa (Amanda Pays), home after picking her up from Nazi Headquarters, they are obviously in a British car. Heir Bruckner is driving from the right-hand side of the car, not the left-hand side as it would be in Germany. See more »

Father Confusion
30 June 2008 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

"A British girl is traveling with her estranged father in order to attempt to rebuild their relationship. Shortly after they arrive in East Germany, the girl begins to suffer from strange sensations and mental lapses, where she remembers events from World War II that she could never have experienced herself. Is this a case of mental breakdown, is it possible memories from a past life, or is she dealing with a rip in the fabric of time and she is actually experiencing the events for real?" asks the DVD sleeve's synopsis.

James Dearden's "The Cold Room" opens with the telling definition: "Possession: psychological state in which an individual personality is replaced by another." In this case, possession can also be mind-numbingly dull. When she throws up her milk, you'll know ill-tempered Amanda Pays (as Carla Martin) is becoming Nazi-era rape victim "Christa Bruckner". Her father, George Segal (as Hugh Martin), wants to bridge the generation gap, as Ms. Pays goes mad. Pretty, model-like Pays has some serious father problems. Anthony Higgins (as Erich) has a good supporting role.

*** The Cold Room (1984) James Dearden ~ Amanda Pays, George Segal, Anthony Higgins
