Multi-faceted film worth seeing
This is a gripping film, multi-layered, with a good script and good performances from its cast.
The story is interesting: a woman (plagued by a recurring nightmare) lands up, unable to speak, with amnesia, at a local convent. Mike Church (Branagh) must find out who she is. (We ‘know’, owing to black and white footage (featuring the same actors, but different characters, about 40 years ago, shortly after WW II) Through hypnotherapy, questions of reincarnation and past lives emerge.The film creates, rather than answers, questions. There are a number of twists and turns in the plot to make this film gripping.
I was not totally convinced that the ending of the film serves its purpose, but the film is gripping. Do see it.
