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

The character of Dr. Van Horn was originally written for novelist Salman Rushdie, a good friend of Paul Auster. Because the fatwah issued against Rushdie by Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini in 1989 had not been lifted, production costs would have exploded because of the necessary security to guard Rushdie. The part eventually went to Willem Dafoe. See more »

A nice little sleeper of a movie
3 April 2000 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I didn't know what to expect before viewing this film. Certainly the title gave no clues and was a bit of a turn-off. However, right from the start I found the story to be interesting. It had a lot of twists and turns that kept my interest throughout. It is one of those pictures that you are better not knowing anything, so I won't reveal any of the plot. Suffice to say this script made for enjoyable watching and I am surprised that other viewers did not rate it as highly as I did.
