Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

The strange pairing of Anthony Perkins and Charles Bronson (as well as Bronson's wife Jill Ireland) is the most interesting thing about this psychological suspense drama. To be sure, it is also interesting to see Bronson cast in a different role for a change, playing a lost and befuddled amnesiac who doesn't know he's a dangerous fugitive. When doctor Perkins discovers who he is, he decides to use him as a tool in his plans for revenge against his adulterous wife. From the American cast to the European setting, the movie never seems to have its finger on exactly where everything is or what it's all about, and drifts through this uncertainty at a pretty slow pace.
