A Movie That Begins as a Good Thriller, and Ends Like a Mexican Soap-Opera
Kaye (Kate Vernon) meets private Connie (Nancy Cser) in a bar, while watching television news. The matter is about the death of a soldier, and the grief of his family. Pretty soon, she defends Connie and herself against the inconvenient insistence of a man inviting them to have a drink with him, using a pocket knife. The next scene shows Kaye arriving in the town where the family of the dead soldier lives, wearing Connie's uniform and identity. She presents herself to the family as being his fiancée while he was in the Army, and is invited by the family to stay in his home. She gets close to his young sister Gail (Ashleigh Ann Wood), seduces his brother Tom (Patrick Dempsey) and convinces his parents Evelyn (Margot Kidder) and Arthur (Alan Royal) that she is a nice girl. Meanwhile, Julie (Krista Bridges), former girlfriend of Tom investigates her past. Surprising revelation will be presented in the end. This movie has a very intriguing presentation and confrontation, mixing thriller with some erotic and hot scenes, with Kate Vernon performing a very amoral woman. However, after the plot point II, the resolution of the story is ridiculous, ending like a Mexican soap-opera. Kate Vernon is beautiful and sexy and has a good performance with her mysterious character, but unfortunately she can not support such ending. My vote is six.
Title (Brazil): "A Desconhecida" ("The Unknown (Woman)")
