    A bit haunting, beautifully distrubed movie of a psychic connection between a murderer and a woman who just can't get him out of her head - and vice versa. Wonderful, convincing acting; it may not be pretty, but sure enough felt real. The movie goes with tragic echo from beginning to end, and looks amazing with an occasional "artistic" touch.
