In this nail-biting thriller Liam Neeson plays Dr. Martin Harris, an American scientist who goes to Berlin with his wife (January Jones) to address an important international microbiology conference. While in Berlin, he is involved in a car accident which puts him in a four-day coma. He wakes up to find that nobody, not even his wife, recognizes him and that another man has assumed his identity. The troubled Neeson rambles around Berlin trying to piece together what is going on. In the process, he makes the acquaintance of Ernst Jurgen (Bruno Ganz), a former member of the Stasi, and the taxi driver, Gina (Diane Kruger), with whom he shared the car crash and things finally start to slot into place. But the stakes are raised even higher as dangerous men are intent on killing Harris. Ignored by disbelieving authorities and hunted by mysterious assassins, he finds himself alone, tired and on the run. Aided by his unlikely allies, Martin plunges headlong into a deadly mystery that will force him to question his sanity, his identity, and just how far he's willing to go to uncover the truth. Director Collet-Serra and cinematographer Flavio Labiano give the Berlin exteriors a lively and ominous quality, hopping between the city's rougher locations and the five-star hotel where the conference takes place. So, what would you do if you wake up tomorrow and somebody else has taken your identity? Would you think you’re going crazy or would you keep your head straight and get down to the bottom of the situation? Watch the movie to find out more, the end might just leave you surprised!
