Director: Wolfgang Petersen Run Time: 98 min. Format: 35mm Rating: R Release Year: 1991
Starring: Tom Berenger, Bob Hoskins, Greta Scacchi, Joanne Whalley, Corbin Bernsen, Theodore Bikel
When a horrific cliff-plummeting car accident leaves him disfigured and amnesia-struck, Dan Merrick (Tom Berenger) relies on his wife Judith (Greta Scacchi) to fill in the gaps of his life. With devotion she shows him all, including how to make love, and by all appearances they’ve reinvigorated a strong, if slightly stale, marriage. But when flashes of memory including gunfire and a whole lotta crashing waves begin to seep in, and evidence of infidelity is undeniable, Dan has to question what was really going on before his memory slipped.
Saying too much about Shattered would spoil the fun of the surprises in store for you, so we’ll just mention that Bob Hoskins shows up as a pet store owner/private investigator in a cozy sweater cuddling a diapered pup, and it just keeps getting more unhinged from there.
