Storyline

Confusing realities surface in this paranoid film dealing with the fragile nature of a young woman (Anne Parillaud) recovering from rape and an apparent attempted suicide. In one reality, she is a killer destroyer of men. In another she is the new wife on a Jamaican honeymoon with her husband (William Baldwin), who is trying to help her recover. Which is real is the question as the story unfolds. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

Shattered Image has lofty goals. It wants to feel like a Hitchcock film. It also tries to toss in rape, spousal abuse, multiple personalities, mystery and murder. But it has big problems. After about 30 minutes we pretty much know who the rapist and the murderer is. We know who the accomplice is. The movie can't stay on one story long enough to let the plot develop. It hops between dream and reality repeatedly. After a while I felt that there was no real plot and that story kept moving around so the viewer wouldn't notice. There is some of the worst pseudo psychobabble between Jessie and her other personality that I have ever seen.

Anne Parillaud tries hard in the lead role. The rest of the cast including William Baldwin are just routine. The scenery in Jamaica is nice. The editing is crisp and the rest of the film is a mess.

There may be people in this world who might like Shattered Image. I just can't imagine any.
