old 'amnesiac' spy routine in this remake of 1988 Robert
Ludlam novel made flick. Set against dramatic European
backdrops, it's the story of a man (Matt Damon), salvaged,
near death, from the ocean by the crew of an Italian
fishing boat. When he recuperates, the man suffers from
total amnesisa. He is completely without identity or
background, but possesses a range of extraordinary talents
in fighting, linguistic skills and self-defense that
speak of a dangerous past. He sets out on a desperate
searchassisted by the initially rebellious Marie
(Franka Potente) to discover who he really is, and why
he is being pursued by assassins.
