Made-for-TV quality.
31 August 2001 | by See all my reviews

Someone on the site complains that nobody knows this movie.Actually,we are two and more,if I check the -exaggerated- rating. Amnesia can provide substance for masterpieces:I would recommend Hitchcock's "spellbound".Such is not the case here.Not that the script is all that bad.Besides, both John Hurt and Marthe Keller are competent actors.But where is the director?If there's one,I cannot see it.The movie is so poorly directed that past and present are indistiguishable.The love affair is bland enough to be included in "Beverly Hills" or some other sitcom.Even the good idea -the short story- is wasted.A beautiful Rolling Stones song ("Memory motel") is used twice,but there is no real connection between it and the movie itself.Perfunctory indeed.Actually it looks like a very average made-for-TV movie,very average,because a lot of these TV movies-I'm thinking of Marvin Chomsky,for instance- are damn better than this poor thing.
