Review

Our Score
Poor scripting and structuring render an unrealistic tale of corporate conspiracy and murder both boring and silly, as success-hungry TV journalist Emmanuelle Vaugier finds herself on the run from hitmen after losing her memory in a car accident. Unaware of who she is and why she's being (ineptly) pursued, the baffled beauty races to piece together past events via bland flashbacks that make the cliché-packed film feel badly paced and bitty. Along the way, life lessons are learnt and there's laughably even time for romance, courtesy of a shady self-help guru (Anthony Lemke) that Vaugier's unconvincing character had previously intended to expose. With so much focus on her as a person, the thriller aspects are underdeveloped and atmospherically flat, leading to a contrived climax and unsatisfying resolution.

Summary

An investigative reporter accidentally stumbles on some dangerous information, and soon has two hitmen pursuing her. While fleeing for her life, she has a car accident that leaves her with amnesia, and must rediscover what she found out to protect herself. Mystery, starring Emmanuelle Vaugier and Anthony Lemke.
