Josh Hartnett plays Matthew who is on his way to Shanghai for business, when he spots who he thinks is the girl that left him high and dry two years before, Lisa, played by Diane Kruger (was Helen in 'Troy'). So lying to his new girlfriend he instead tries to track down Lisa. Following a trail of what, to him, could lead only to Lisa. He does a few things that make you question his sanity. When he finally reaches the end of the trail the girl he does find, Lisa/Alex, played by Rose Byrne. Obviously not his Lisa. But there is something sinister lurking behind the story of this girl and there are far too many coincidences connecting the two women.
Hartnett is wonderfully tortured, lost, confused, but at the same time so determined to find the love of his life. His film roles are steadily getting better and better.
Byrne demands sympathy from the viewer, bringing a whole new meaning to "I saw him first." Matthew Lillard is great as Hartnett's best friend, Luke, who is trying to support him but at the same time, knock some sense into him.
This was a great film. By the end of it I wanted Hartnett to find his closure so bad that I found myself yelling " NO" every time a new obstacle was thrown in his way.
The final scene is exquisite and touching. A perfect ending to a fantastic film.
*hit the helpful button if you enjoyed my review:) thanks!*
This is a very well acted film, Rose Byrne is a clear standout, and the cast was an overall successful ensemble. This is one of those films with a lot of twists and turns, coupled with switching the past and present - sounds a bit dizzying, but it all makes sense. The locations, colors, clothing, weather, etc. they all work as well, giving the film an artistic look. Give it a shot, if you enjoyed it, watch it one more time. It may become your favorite movie just like it became mine.
That's as far as I will go except to say that it has a very pleasing denouement. Its a great movie; one that your interest in watching will never flag once the main narrative is engaged, which is engaged from the start.

Intense chemistry between the on-screen love of characters played by Josh Hartnett and Diane Kruger. It's a bit mysterious and nerve wrecking, but so worth it in the end. Read morePublished 7 days ago by Nesi
Love Josh Hartness and the movie started out well but soon went bad. Attempted to be a psychological teaser but halfway through I wanted to turn it off. Read morePublished 2 months ago by On-line Shopper
I loved this movie. It is a wonderful Chicago film that captures the feelings of a generation, and explains the randomness of it all. I recommend this to any thinking person.Published 3 months ago by G. Perkins
