A grief-stricken mother takes on the LAPD to her own detriment when it stubbornly tries to pass off an obvious impostor as her missing child, while also refusing to give up hope that she will find him one day.
A biochemist and his dishy wife arrive in Berlin for a conference at which a scientist and his controversial Arab funder will announce breakthrough research. While his wife checks into the hotel, he grabs a cab to return to the airport for his briefcase, left at the curb. En route, an auto accident puts him in a coma, from which he awakes four days later without identification and with gaps in his memory. He goes to the hotel: his wife refuses to recognize him and another man has claimed his identity. With help from a nurse, the cab driver, a retired Stasi agent, and an academic friend, he tries to unravel what's going on. Is the answer in the briefcase? Written by

The opening credits are shown as clouds being viewed from an airplane blow past... not so crazy, except that it actually makes one of the credits unreadable. See more »
its just too bad. but when you've watched a huge amount of movies, there comes the point when you've simply seen all the plots before and it all just repeats itself over and over..
this, overall a well made movie, with some good action scenes, and quite well made plot (considering what else is out there), is just to predictable.
without giving away the story, imagine, some character in a movie has a wife, some other girl enters the story, and sparks fly. if you've seen a good number of films, you can already see that the girl is the main love interest and shell be the one to stay when the end credits come on.
and from that point on its easy to see that the plot has to go in some direction that neutralizes the wife, since most people don't like to see adultery.
so the wife has to be either in on some kind of conspiracy, this seems to happen more and more in movies, which is getting very old.. or she proofs to be some kind of bigamist or assassin, just to nullify her likability and void the marriage.
well, you'll have to see yourself whats predictable about this movie. most likely you wont notice or guess a thing, and it just me, watching to many movies..
anyway, its well made, and worth the 90 min.
