Charmed and charming David Aames, the princely heir to a publishing empire, is utterly captivated by Spanish dancer Sofia, to the distress of his carelessly discarded lover, Julie. The fateful consequences hurl him into a labyrinthine mystery of love, murder, conspiracy and revenge. But which of his memories are real, which a dream?
Challenging, slow-burning drama which demands close attention as it switches from one genre to another — romance, noir, sci-fi — and rewards patience with a stunning, all-is-revealed payoff. Cruise’s appeal is crucial in determining whether an artful premise translates into box office.
