Deze thriller uit 1991 is het regiedebuut van de Britse steracteur Kenneth Bragan (Henry V, The Gingerbread man). Evenals Emma Thompson (The remains of the day, Howards end) speelt hij een dubbelrol, verder zien we onder meer Derek Jacobi en Hanna Schygulla. Een privédetective in Los Angeles wordt ingeschakeld door een vrouw die lijdt aan nachtmerries en geheugenverlies. Beiden blijken in een vorig leven betrokken geweest bij een moordzaak. De film speelt afwisselend in 1940 en in 1990, ook droom en werkelijkheid lopen door elkaar. Roger Ebert (Chicago Sun Times,i) geeft 4 (van 5) sterren: 'The screenplay, by Scott Frank, is old-fashioned (if you will allow that to be a high compliment). It takes grand themes - murder, passion, reincarnation - and plays them at full volume. Yet there is room for wit, for turns of phrase, for subtle little sardonic touches, for the style that transforms plot into feeling.' Als extra is er gesproken commentaar.
