In the tradition of such classic Noir films as "Somewhere in the Night", "The Long Wait", "Street of Chance", or "Strange Impersonation", "Shattered" tells the story of a man whose memory is erased from a car accident and he now has to rebuild his life from scrap. Things are going well until he begins to discover dark secrets about his forgotten past and enigmatic nightmares that haunt him. The plot is very solid with an incredibly strong sense of mystery (you keep watching to discover the answers to these puzzling riddles) and characters are well developed for the most part. Performances are solid, especially by Hoskins who plays an amateur private investigator and pet store owner with great wit and charm. The twists the film makes at the conclusion are indeed surprising and unexpected, yet be forewarned that they may require a suspension of disbelief. Still, if you want to watch a mystery that will have you guessing throughout (and probably proved wrong in the end) this is a very good film to do just that.
