A man awakens from a coma, only to discover that someone has taken on his identity and that no one, (not even his wife), believes him.
Standard spy thriller in the vein of The Bourne Identity that doesn't miss out on all the usual ingredients of the genre.
Maltin **1/2: "Hitchcockian story, based on a novel by French author Didier van Cauwelaert, has a great set-up, a good cast, fresh Berlin locations, and a couple of nifty chase scenes, but doesn't pay off as well as it should. Passable escapism, no more."

Germans kidnap an American major and try to convince him that World War II is over, so that they can get details about the Allied invasion of Europe out of him.
An interesting story idea is given a professional, but somewhat pedestrian treatment.
Halliwell *: "Well-detailed spy suspenser."
Maltin **1/2: "Intriguing WW2 yarn..."
