Storyline

A recently paralyzed architect, Jason Kemp, believes he has witnessed a murder from his apartment window. Jason's colleague, Claudia, quickly becomes his partner in trying to solve the mysterious puzzle that lies in the apartment across the way. The more-than-patient detective, Moore, grudgingly responds to their repeated calls and accusations, but believes Jason's imagination is getting the best of him. Determined to uncover the truth, Jason continues to dig deeper - eventually finding himself locked in a deadly game of cat and mouse. Written by Paul Klenk <paulklenk@rocketmail.com>

Claudia: Jason, she probably spent the day at a bar or at her sister's or her mother's trying to get up the courage to come home. She's gonna come home, she'll be remorseful, they'll be all lovey-dovey for a few days and ...

Jeff Bleckner is not as perfect as Alfred Hitchcock.
2 July 2001 | by lionel.willoquetSee all my reviews

A paralyzed architect, who spends his time spying on his neighbours, convinces itself that one of them is a murderer. By freeing itself from the single room location, this new version of one of the Hitchcock classics lose in dramatic intensity. What remains is the emotional test of re-encountering Christopher Reeve.
