A blind woman witnesses a murder shortly after an operation which enables her to see again and the main detective on the case develops feelings for her.
Cliché-ridden thriller with a couple of decent performances, but it brings nothing to an already saturated thriller market. This has nothing on the similarly themed Wait Until Dark (qv) and Madeliene Stowe is no match for Audrey Hepburn.
Worth catching if it's on TV and nothing else is on, but it really is a blink-and-you'll-miss-it movie.
Did You Know:
The condition that Madeleine Stowe's character suffers from the film does actually exist. It's called retroactive hallucination.
