Entertaining Amnesia Crime Thriller with Alain Delon
and Senta Berger, and I just watched her in the excellent giallo "Puzzle",
was good there too and also that film was an Amnesia crime mystery,
read more about "Puzzle" on my Giallo and Eurocrime pages.
Delon has always been a favourite of mine with his minimalistic style
of acting, in films like Le Samourai, Le Cercle Rouge and The
Sicilian Clan, but Senta Berger was a surprise for me, a fine actress
and ridiculously gorgeous. I will've to look up more of her films.
A man wakes up in a private hospital and suffering from
amnesia. He's told he has been in a car crash when driving drunk and
his name is George Campo (Delon) and he's visited by a beautiful woman,
his wife Christina (Berger). He can't remember her or that
he's married but supposedly he's a rich businessman and owner of a construction
company, recently returning from Hong Kong.
George and Christina lives in a huge country mansion
with the "unusual" butler Kim (Peter Mosbacher, and he's delightfully
strange in the role) who seems to have a sexual kink with his mistress.
Also, there's their best friend Freddie (Sergio Fantoni) a man
that George remember faintly, but who's Pierre Lagrange, what about
the memory fragments of Hong Kong and why won't his
beautiful wife Christina have sex with him ?
George gets more and more suspicious of being involved with something
Netflix has added this and many other Eurocrime and
gialli films to their catalogue and that's fine even though i don't
subscription. I love Euro movies from the Golden Era, the 1960's and
Kino Lorber presents the film in a 1.66:1 ratio and
with a french audio with english subtitles. US edition Region A
Extras an audio commentary by duo Howard S. Berger and Nathanile Thompson
AKA The Two Bores, theatrical trailer
