Based on a novel by Richard Neely with a screenplay by Wolfgang Peterson who was also directed the film starts off with a serious car crash accident with both parties surviving with one more serious than the other since the wife fell out of the vehicle while the husband stayed in. And while in hospital, his face has to be recontructed back together and he is Dan played by Tom Berenger, and while recouperating his wife Judith played by Greta Scacchi makes attempts to recount his lost memory regarding the accident since he gotten some amnesia /memory loss. And while at home, he accidently stumbles onto some pictures of his wife having an illicit affair with some stranger unoblivious who the person is and meets former associates to piece a part of his past together which includes Corbin Berstein as Jeb Scott a co-partner of a multi million dollar project and his wife played by Johanne Whalley Kilmer and Bob Hoskins as the P.I. Gus. The erotic scenes are at times distracting which lacks suspense ending the film with a twist that can't be seen a mile away since upon writing this review, this is my second viewing after many years.
