The spirit of Alfred Hitchcock looks down and smiles. The lean
direction, the strong narrative, and the iconic blonde femme fatale
all point to the Master in this fully engrossing puzzler that keeps
you guessing all the way to its very satisfying explanation. It
features the first-ever scene between Bruno Ganz and Frank Langella
(one of the movie's high points), an exciting car chase, get-him!-get-
him! fight scenes, and a decidedly older Aidan Quinn. The fact that
this is an American-German co-production may explain why Diane Kruger
gets second billing, followed by January Jones (although Kruger does
have a bigger part). More than anything, this thriller proves again
how effective a strong story can be. — Jeff Schultz
