[Kate is under hypnosis, reliving her escape from Casanova]
I hear him, whispering.
What does he say?
I can feel his mouth on my ear, his breath. He tells me that he loves me.
Tell me about his face. Tell me about his eyes. His mouth.
[Kate's breathing begins to quicken]
He has no face. A mask! He always wears a mask!
What kind of mask? What does it look like?
[her breathing slows]
It changes. I can't show him that I hate him.
But you escape. What do you see when you escape?

Originally, the voice of Casanova was dubbed (though uncredited) by Jeff Kober. In later airings (notably satellite broadcasts), his voice was dubbed by Tony Goldwyn, who also plays Dr. Rudolph (The Gentleman Caller) in the movie. See more »
GIRLS is a very good adaptation of a James Patterson novel about a collector of women. One of those kidnapped is D.C. sleuth Alex Cross' nieces, and Cross (played wonderfully by Morgan Freeman) is soon on the case. Ashley Judd in her prime plays a doctor kidnapped by and who eventually escapes from the masked bad buy. She and Cross eventually track him down in his lair, but the question is will Cross' niece still be alive? The identity of the bad guy will come as no surprise tomost crime film fans, but it's a fun ride getting there. Veteran character actors Bill Nunn, Tony Goldwyn, Brian Cox and Cary Elwes are all along for the ride. Strong direction and suspenseful pacing help immensely. Too bad the follow-up Alex Cross adventure, with Freeman again playing Cross, ALONG CAME A SPIDER, was a dog. Might have made an interesting franchise.
