Here's an interesting little flick that could have been really good, a kind of update of The Manchurian Candidate with a much smaller milieu and a cool sci-fi twist, but it loses its way just a few too many times.
Anna (Georgina French in her first film role) wakes up in the middle of the road in what seems to be a nameless Eastern European country (we find out later it's Chechnya), having been dumped out of a van in the opening scene. We soon find out that she is unable to speak, nor to remember anything. Meanwhile, Morgan (John Hopkins, no doubt soon to be a household name; he's in Tim Burton's upcoming Alice in Wonderland) also wakes up with no memory, but he finds that he has been taken in by a seemingly benevolent old man named Joseph (Bird Feeder's Nick Simons). Joseph discovers a picture Morgan has on him, and written on the back in marker is "MORGAN FIND ANNA." But with no memory, how is he going to do so? And what happened to his memory in the first place?
It's not half bad, really, though some of the acting could have been better (and in at least one case, a whole lot better), and the script keeps teetering on the brink of being too complex for Turner (Big Mistake) to handle. This was his first film, though, and given the amount of potential it had, I'm kind of willing to give him a pass on it. Not at all what it could have been, but intriguing nonetheless, and worth checking out. ** ½
