Only a few weeks after her husband's mysterious death, Maureen returns from a cruise with handsome Brit Oliver Vance in tow. Her son Scott is mortified. He still can't believe that his father - a world-class athlete - actually drowned. When Maureen and Oliver announce wedding-plans, Scott's world begins to fall apart. Oliver's attractive daughter Kelly shares Scott's distrust of the impending marriage - and proposes a theory of her own: is it possible that Maureen and Oliver have known each other longer than just a few weeks; and if so, could they have possibly killed Scott's father? The two start to investigate - and soon fall in love. But while they are united by a horrible suspicion, the investigation soon reveals some secrets that keep them apart. Scott has to realize that he can truly trust no one - not Oliver, not Maureen and definitely not Kelly. Written by
"Fascination" is an extremely fast film. I guess I personally would have liked it to takes things a little bit slower. The plot takes turns that you wouldn't possibly expect and the film evolves into a more complex story by the minute. The character you've just grown to like and trust might turn out to be driven by some strong sinister motive just the next scene. So you end up feeling mistrust towards basically anybody quite soon. Adam Garcia's acting is excellent. So is Jacqueline Bisset's. Garcia's mourning for his father is quite authentic. Moreover, his dazzling physical appearance is bound to appeal to the entire female audience. He's real cute. I am sure, we'll hear more from him in the future. I've seen the German cut and I guess it must be somewhat more revealing than the American version in this sense. I liked the film even though those who argues that the ending was rather unusual may have a point. ...So go and see for yourself.
