Dr. Martin Harris, a botanist, is in a taxi accident in Berlin just before he is to give a major speech at an environmental conference. He is in the hospital for a few days, and when he regains his memory and tries to return to his life, no one remembers him - not even his beloved wife - and another man has taken on his identity. He is believed and helped by a couple of people, but things get weirder and weirder. It's really hard to figure out what's going on...which is pretty great, actually. You're kept guessing and wondering.

I really enjoyed this movie. It made me think. It probably didn't hurt that I was on vacation and having the time of my life with wonderful, close friends....but I did enjoy this movie and would recommend it.
