    This intriguing mystery/thriller by Brian DePalma (Mission: Impossible, Carrie) will leave you breathless.

    A tenth wedding anniversary celebration ends tragically when Michael Courtland (Cliff Robertson) discovers that his wife (Genevieve Bujold) and 9-year-old daughter have been kidnapped. When an attempt to thwart the captors goes awry, Courtland`s wife and daughter are never recovered. Several years later while vacationing in Florence, Courtland falls in love with a young woman who is an exact double of his dead wife. On the eve of their wedding, the woman disappears and Courtland finds a ransom note - a duplicate of the one found several years earlier.

    There is some contention as to the standard of this transfer. I think it`s great, though it`s not without it`s problems. The DVD has a hard time trying to reproduce the films overexposed lighting palette, but apart from that it`s great...


    Mono =7
    Surround =8
    DD =9

    I don`t know how you can rate this film so highly? It is only an ok thriller and not brilliant, especially john lithgow, he is no good in films, just third rock.
