An unconscious man is washed ashore on the beach of a small French village during a heavy storm. A retired doctor takes care of the unconscious stranger. When the mysterious man recovers, he can't remember a thing...he does not know his name, he does not know where his flashback memories come from, and he does not know why the access code for an anonymous Swiss bank account is implanted in his thigh. As he seeks his own identity, things quickly become dangerous. There are attempts to kill him, he is well known in first class hotels across Europe, and worst of all, there are strange similarities between his memories and reported actions of the notorious terrorist, Carlos the Jackal.

The microfiche embedded under Bourne's skin and read by the doctor has the following "GEMEINSCHAFT BANK ZURICH 0.7.17.0.126.96.36.199". See more »
When Bourne shoots buckshot at a gas tank from fifty meters/yards, buckshot from that distance would not make a gas tank combust (it probably won't even make a dent), and lead pellets do not spark when they hit cast iron. See more »
Where am I?
You're in Port Noir. This little village on the south coast of France. It's a village without boutique or Club Med or T-shirts. We've managed to avoid the 20th century. Intend to be dead before the 21st. It's quite a trick.

More faithful to the book than the Matt Damon version.
Since the release of the 2003 theatrical version starring Matt Damon, this mini series version of "The Bourne Identity" has been much maligned, primarily by people who have never seen it. While it is a little dumbed down from Ludlum's book, and has some soap opera elements inherent to being a Richard Chamberlain mini series, it's also infinitely more faithful to the book than the Damon version, and considerably less dumbed down. If you want to see some great action scenes, check out the movie. If you want a good story, try the mini series (or even better, read the book).
