Regaining her mind and her sanity
27 November 2005 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

Rebecca Blake, the attractive woman one sees at the beginning of this made for television movie, is having a hard time at her local super market where she collapses after she sees a young child , who obviously is a reminder of someone she knows. One realizes right away this woman has no recollection and no memory of who she is, or where she came from. Rebecca is happily married to Joe, a good man that clearly adores her.

When she meets by chance someone on the street who greets her as Abby, she tells the woman she must have made a mistake, but that triggers in her mind a doubt. She goes back to this lady, who tells her how she met her and the area of California she was from. Rebecca pleads with Joe to let her go to unravel the mystery and all the tangled web in her mind.

Harry Winer directed this story that supposedly is based on a true story, as most television movies are. The story is greatly helped by the heartfelt performances of the principals. Jane Seymour is Rebecca, the woman who lost her life through no choice of her own. Bruce Davison is Chase, her former husband who is the key player in what happened to Abby/Rebecca. David Keith is the sheriff of the small California town where Abby finds the missing pieces of her past. A. Martinez plays Joe, the new man in Abby's life.

The film was totally shot in the town of Fillmore, California, which is the center of the orange growing industry and offers a magnificent setting for the story. Since it's a melodrama, prepare the Kleenex, but the film is worth watching thanks to what director Winer did with this story.
