Fascination (2005) [German/British]

a.k.a. Heart of Stone (working title)

Filmed in 2002, this attempt at noir sat on the shelf until it was released in Germany in 2004. Then given a very limited release in the USA in early 2005. Released on video/DVD in May, 2005. Set in Florida, but filmed in Puerto Rico. Working title was "Heart of Stone".

The plot has plenty of twists and turns, but never really builds up any suspense. One never understands why Jacqueline's character (Maureen Doherty) would be so swept away by "Oliver Vance" (played by Stuart Wilson).
