memory restores pain
25 March 2003 | by See all my reviews

Executive produced by James Keach, Jane Seymour is Rebecca Vega, a bookstore worker living in San Pedro with construction worker husband Joe (A. Martinez), but she has headaches and nightmares. She meets Lynn Wyman (Cathy Lee Crosby) who knew Rebecca as Abbie Stewart with 3 children - Jenna (Amanda Barfield), Ethan (Colton James) and Lilly (Mika Boorem) - and Rebecca goes to Fillmore County to investigate her past.

Seymour has a gash in her forehead which we later see is from being hit with a fireplace poker, and in her flashback memory her long hair is shoulder length and she wears virginal white. She is actually lit unflatteringly, looking tired and leathery, perhaps partly due to her traumatised state, so when her former husband school principal Chase (Bruce Davison) tells her how beautiful she is, it sounds odd. Seymour provides sobless tears, we see her handwriting, wears a stick in her hair worn up, overdoes a hesitation in opening a buzzed door, and has a campy panic-attack faint in a supermarket.

The teleplay by Lindsay Harrison and Renee Longstreet, based on a true story, has a howler in Rebecca/Abbie to Chase `I've learned a lot from you. School's over.', and Jenna has a good line in sarcasm when she tells her mother to take her locket in case she loses her memory again, but director Harry Winer goes all out with the nightmare/daymare visions - black and white, tilted and subjective camera, whiplash editing, slow motion, stop motion, and lightning flashes, and fire - plus a choir in the music of Mark Snow.
