A stylishly shot thriller with several hair-raising moments. Considering that it's directed by Barbet Schroeder and stars Bridget Fonda and Jennifer Jason Leigh, it's also a major disappointment.

The film is smooth, entertaining and believably sophisticated. It has far more sound psychological underpinnings than other movies of its type.
