Heavy with symbolism and light on storyline, this unbalanced tale of an unbalanced woman leaves a few open questions at the end. When Nelly (Eileen Atkins) is first encountered in a hotel, she does not remember her family or her friends and draws a blank when a detective arrives to connect her with a series of crimes. Eventually, Nelly goes back to her family and reprises a fairly boring, mundane existence -- are there any clues within this life that lead to the crimes she supposedly committed, or even lead to her amnesia? Maybe.
