plays an orange packer about to be married to her truck-driver boyfriend when he finds a picture of her on the beach with a handsome young man whom he’s never met before. He questions her, pesters her really, and she insists it’s a relationship in the past that she has long since forgotten. The journey he takes leads him to places of the heart and the male egotistical mind that I’m sure he’d rather not have gone to. The ending’s a bit too Schwarzenegger for my liking, but other than that it’s a fascinating study of obsession that would have made Hitchcock very proud.
