Storyline

While going to the town of Ashby Wake, the drifter Cassie is hit by a car driven by Marion Kirkman and loses her memory. Marion invites Cassie to stay in her huge old house with her family, while recovering from the trauma. Cassie becomes very close to Michael, the young son of Marion's husband Simon Kirkman. He is researching a recently discovered buried church from the First Century, with images of the crucifixion of Jesus and many anonymous persons watching it. Cassie starts having visions and premonitions with some locals, and decides to investigate the weird and nasty mechanic Frederick Michael Argyle. Her findings about who she is and the mystery relative to the locals and the town surprises her. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Interesting and entertaining, I always enjoy Christina Ricci
4 March 2004 | by (Brisbane, Australia) – See all my reviews

Interesting film, I very much enjoyed the clever twist at the end (which I admit I wasn't expecting until close to the very end).

Relying on mysterious early-Christian mythology (a common theme in several recent films) it pulls the tie-in off fairly well and doesn't seem too outlandish or over the top in a supernatural sense.

Christina Ricci as always engenders feeling for her likable character and manner; as an American she seems a little strangely out of place in the English countryside setting but not overly so.

I'm quite Comfortable giving this film 8.5-9/10 and would consider it above films such as Lost Souls, etc. I've seen some compare it to the 6th Sense but I can't say I really agree with that comparative assessment myself.
