When Peter describes his first dream, he tells his girlfriend that "she (Marsha) was hitting me in the (private parts) with a paddle. Initially, the director may have wanted to show the murder as involving an injury of this sort, because when the man in the dream falls back into the water, he is holding his private area. But, it is very clear that when he is in the boat, he is on his stomach. There is no way she could have hit the front of his body. See more »
The original novel was a very good (and spooky) tale of a man reincarnated (Michael Sarrazin) and falling in love with his daughter (Jennifer O'Neill) from his previous life. Unfortunately he was killed by his previous wife (Margot Kidder) and she's starting to suspect something...
The movie has a good cast and is well-done but it's slow-moving and seems more interested in showing sex, nudity and violence that giving us a good story. Heck,within the first 5 minutes there's gratuitous female nudity! Kidder masturbates in the tub, O'Neill has a nude love sequence with Sarrazin and there are disturbing shots of a man violently raping his wife. Also there are shots of the guy totally nude walking to a lake. But, then again, I saw it when I was 13...ANY nudity shocked me! I went with my mom, my younger sister and her friend--they all walked out pretty stunned (and embarrassed)...I walked out very interested! To be honest the book was more explicit, but it WAS well-written. The movie just didn't do it justice. Also Sarrazin's acting was pretty bad but O'Neill and Kidder were very good.
All in all it's OK. Avoid the TV version which is so heavily cut it's impossible to follow. It is available on YouTube uncut.
