Kristin Scott Thomas,
Forty-year-old Christine Lucas wakes up in bed with a man she does not know, in an unfamiliar house. The man explains that he is her husband, Ben, and that she suffered brain damage from a car accident ten years earlier. Christine wakes up every morning with no memory of her life from her early twenties onwards. Christine receives treatment from Dr. Nasch, a neurologist at a local hospital who provides her a camera to record her thoughts and progress each day, and calls her every morning to remind her to watch the video in the camera. Soon, she starts to discover the truth around her. Written by
Director Rowan Joffe had originally been given the manuscript of the film by TV producer Liza Marshall, with no cover. Initially reading and thinking it was a memoir/straight drama in novel form, he was shocked to discover it was a thriller as he read more. See more »
Claire tells Christine (while the latter is at home) that she can meet her at Greenwich Observatory and be there "in an hour".
As Christine was taken to Ascot District Hospital from home, it is reasonable to assume she lives in Berkshire - and therefore would not have been able to reach Greenwich Observatory in less than an hour as she is seen waiting for Claire. See more »
Who are you?
I'm your husband... Ben.
We got married in 1999. That was 14 years ago. Christine, you're 40.
[hands her her clothes]
You had an accident. It was a bad accident. You had head injuries. And you have problems remembering things.
What things? What...?
Everything. You store up information for a day, and when you wake up in the morning, it's all gone. You're back to your early 20s. You'll be okay. Just... trust me.

A badly scripted and directed mishmash in which Kidman, Firth and Strong act brilliantly but can't overcome the dreadful limitations of what's put before us. Suspension of disbelief just doesn't happen for this viewer. Can a chemistry teacher afford a house this plush (in London yet)? Who does the shopping, cooking, cleaning? How come over four years there's zero interaction with neighbours or any of the people one encounters daily in real life? In every scene I found myself thinking "hang on, but...". You just can't get away with this kind of situation as if the rest of the world doesn't exist. Striking example of the problem: the scene when Kidman goes to Firth's school. He's clearly truly a chemistry teacher there. Wouldn't the other staff (if not the kids, too) know the situation, with so many years gone by since the incident that left Kidman amnesic? Sorry: when things just don't wash, the hogwash sensation rears its head, and a thriller like this can't survive the hogwash sensation. The whole thing looks inappropriately sumptuous (fault of direction, sets and cinematography) and overall it just induces irritation instead of enthralment. The plot twists are crashingly predictable. Amnesia is strongly recommended for those who bother to watch this pedestrian film.
