The atmosphere is there in the big empty mansion like it was haunted, perfect as setting for a horror/mystery film. As the film progresses, the story becomes confusing and more questions raised and no answers in the end makes the whole thing confusing and forgettable. Rating 6.5/10 is stretching a little far. Why'd Anna want to send John to jail? What'd she get out of this? It's very ungrateful seeing John has no other intention than trying to cure her, while making a living in the process. How'd she manage to wake up before John, changed her memory and able to to manipulate him, when he's supposed to be an expert in this? And why'd his own memory of his wife dying just happen to pop up unnecessarily and it so happened during all those crucial moments?
If she was locked inside her own room and supposed to have no outside interaction, why'd she be seen outside by John and if that wasn't her, who was it? It happened more than once so it couldn't just be explained as John's mere imagination. And why and what'd she be doing outside? She's been locked inside and apparently no contact with anybody or did anybody want anything to do with her, deeming her as a psycho. At the end when John was chasing Anna into the forest, who was that man standing at the top of the hill? Who locked John in the surveillance room? Whose blood was on Anna's hand when she hugged him? What happened to whoever that person was? Did she stab her own mother? Why? Where was Anna in the end when John was in jail? What happened to her? Still locked in her room, for eternity? Nothing much is explained like the writer himself has no answers to them either and all these confusing elements are just jumbled and thrown into the story to make it feel more mysterious when in fact it just comes across as confusing to the point of annoying.
Nothing makes sense and I don't bother whatever happens to the plot or characters anymore. Mark Strong is the reason why I'd stay with this film till the end. The girl just comes across as spoilt and pain in the a**, unbelievable as a manipulative yet innocent girl who somehow manages to outsmart an older and experienced adult and sent him to jail for no reason at all.
As a TV movie, it's ok to see just once for free. I wouldn't pay to see this mediocre film.
In the near future or an alternate reality, there are memory detectives, people who have the ability to enter other people's electronically-aided memories. They often are used to resolve psychological conflicts, and sometimes to exonerate someone from a crime. John was at one time the top in this field, but he has been recovering from the death of his wife, and a stroke. To get back into work the head of the small firm he works for offers him what is supposed to be a simple job - getting 16-year-old Anna to start eating again. However, the "simple job" turns into his most challenging.
