Storyline

Julian Jons is a talented but troubled young artist. He has just been released from an asylum, where he has spent the last seven years for the murder of Anna, his girlfriend/model. Attempting to start painting again, he is pursued by journalist Jennifer Cole, who is intrigued by this complex, brooding man. Against the backdrop of the modern art world, she begins to dig into the past, fully aware that it holds painful memories for Julian, and perhaps danger for herself.

Hidden gem
7 December 2003 | by (Austria) – See all my reviews

Rsoonsa's review here says it all. A really underrated movie that is of a better quality than most of the mainstream trash. If you want to see a movie that shares this movies fate try to get a look at `Playmaker' (starring Jennifer Rubin). Both movies have no flawless script, of course, but on the other hand there are so much big-budget productions out with really atrocious scripts that those two movies I'm talking about stand out not only because of their scripts, but also because of the quality of their directing, photography, acting and music.
