Imagine waking up and someone has taken your life and everything in it, including your wife, your career and your friends.
Dr Martin Harris (Liam Neeson) is in Berlin for a biotechnology conference with his wife Liz (Janary Jones). Shortly after arriving at the hotel, Martin turns back for the airport after forgetting his briefcase, leaving Liz at the hotel. During this fateful taxi journey, Martin is injured and becomes unconscious. The taxi driver, Gina (Dianne Kruger) saves his life before disappearing.
A few days later, Martin wakes up in the hospital with no knowledge of how he got there. He remembers who he is and sets out to find his wife whom he believes has been alone and scared in a foreign city while he was missing. Upon return to his hotel, Martin discovers his wife Liz with another man (Aidan Quinn), who claims to be her husband, Dr Martin Harris.
Liz claims not to know him and reports him to hotel security. This leaves Martin questioning his own sanity. Has he somehow remembered a life that he's never had? Or has someone gone to extraordinary lengths to steal his life and make him appear insane?
This movie has so many twists and turns that you will never see coming. If you think you have figured it all out, those theories will all go out the window with the next bombshell that is dropped. This one is definitely worth seeing. It's a well written thriller, and unlike so many movies, it has an ending that you cannot have imagined.

I completely agree with this review. I got this out on DVD because I unfortunately missed it at the movies, but what I got was the promised twists and turns. When you think you have it, everything changes. I would also recommend this movie as it made my mind spin for a long time trying to work out the ending and exactly what was happening. Great review.
