Storyline

A writer witnesses a murder that may have been politically motivated involving Argentinian Nationals. After picking the man out of a line-up and persuasively testifying in court against him, the man is convicted. However, his girlfriend shows up and says the man is innocent and produces a picture of a young child which she says will be without a father. This leaves the writer with doubts and then when he sees another man who looks very much like the killer, he becomes more certain that he made a mistake. However, everything is not as it appears and the writer finds himself drawn into the murder and blackmail. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

Simple Review about Simpler Movie !

The music at the opening credits was so good and strong, the rest of the music wasn't.

The lead actress (Brigitte Bako) was so hot, her performance wasn't.

(Costas Mandylor) as a project for a movie star is fine, his career by any chance isn't !

(Craig Sheffer) is doing the usual, but his haircut here is the worst in all the history of movies ever !

The idea of the script was clever, the whole movie wasn't.

After a while I nearly forgot (Double Take), but the thing to not forget is the fact about it as not that entertaining !

P.S : I don't like (Franz Kafka) that much so I didn't like the quote from him at the movie : "Sex is the punishment for the happiness of being together" !!!, what kind of problems did Mr.Kafka have exactly?
