Storyline

A jazz saxophonist loses his capability to play when he is injured in a shooting at a café where he was playing. He sinks into depression when everyone charges in to take care of him, including his ex-wife. However, he discovers a stone with a telephone number attached. Returning the stone, he meets a young aspiring actress who in one of those film coincidences is listening to his music. Soon the two begin an affair which is fouled by his over-obsessiveness with her which costs them both a job at a restaurant. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

Trivia

At one point Dr. Van Horn (Willem Defoe) writes on a scrap of paper: "Celia - s 'il y a". This pun is based on a similarity between a girl's name and a phrase in French meaning something like "if she exists" or "if she is there". It is a direct reference to Samuel Beckett's novel "Murphy" (1938): Celia, lover of an eponymous character, has an uncle, Mr. Willoughby Kelly, who comes up with this piece of bilingual wordplay. Paul Auster has consistently acknowledged Beckett's influence on his own oeuvre. See more »

Goofs

When Izzy is at Celia's apartment for the first time and closes the curtains to make it dark, there is a lot of light coming in even with the curtains closed. When they turn the lights off, the room is very dark. See more »

Really excellent, captivating movie, makes you think and feel
5 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I got in one hour after it had started. It starred Harvey Keitel, whom I especially like and wanted to watch it because of him. Then Wilem DaFoe was there also, second reason to continue watching. Then, again, Mandy Patikin, number three great actor. I liked the character Harvey was playing, a soft spoken, quiet man, much different than many of his other characters. It was more like his character in 'The Piano'. I was pulled in and couldn't stop watching. I didn't know what had come before, so couldn't completely understand it, but just had to keep watching. As in a mystery, I thought I knew what was going on and I knew I had to see the entire movie at that point. It's more like a play than a movie, and excellently done. Great cinematography. Great suspense. Stunning finish. Really made me think and feel deeply.
