Storyline

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 Karsten Kastelan

Kind of Deja Vu
5 January 2007 | by RainStar_AnahitaSee all my reviews

I gave this film the vote of 4, basically for its music, otherwise it felt like watching some cheap Australian soap...

I could not see any clever twist in Fascination. It was one disaster after another with two absolutely opposite endings ...

The film was patchy with all sorts of obvious conspiracies loosely arranged to get something together.

Yes, an unhappy wife, a seemingly disloyal husband, an affair and behind all a mastermind to use people's emotions for personal aims are all we have seen before and we all know about the thin line between love and hate.

All the way through this movie I watched scenarios that I had seen before on other films and so I had this sense of Deja Vu all the time.
