Can't get tired of Watching It ! Haunting musical Score !
20 May 2002 | by (Ile-de-France / Paris Region, France) – See all my reviews

I'd already seen this on French TV a couple of times and was determined to possess the original English-language version - which I found on a DVD purchased from the United States. Unfortunately the film has 2 titles - Undesirable and With a Vengeance - God knows why but that doesn't facilitate searching for a DVD ! This is an excellent story and the actress, Melissa Gilbert is, well.......... cute ! The bad guy in the film by the name of Michael Gross is genuinely FRIGHTENING and suspense is maintained from the beginning till the very end at a constant pace. Also, the very effective and memorable music score background music sends shivers up your spine, and the use of "tinted flashbacks" is very effective. Only one negative point, picture quality, even on the DVD is not up to scratch for 1992. I would certainly recommend this film to any one who likes good suspense films and also for its very beautiful actress ! I was most enthralled by the way that love slowly blossoms between Melissa Gilbert and her new-found companion Jack Scalie and his adorable little son who is really cute when he accompanies Gilbert alone on her journey to Portland !
