Stylish but formulaic psychological thriller about a criminal psychologist (Halle Berry) who, after a cryptic roadside encounter with a mysterious girl, wakes up to find herself in an asylum and the prime suspect in the murder of her husband. While director Mathieu Kassovitz proves adroit at creating suspense and keeping the audience's ice-cold sweat on a slow drip -- eschewing buckets of blood in favor of a more suggestive spookiness -- it quickly becomes apparent that the film's eerie neo-gothic atmospherics are merely diversionary, distracting viewers' attention from the poverty of the script. Some gory violence, flashes of shadowy nudity, as well as an instance of rough language and occasional crude language and profanity. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is L -- limited adult audience, films whose problematic content many adults would find troubling. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted.
