In 1959, affluent businessman Michael Courtland and his wife are celebrating their tenth anniversary when his daughter and wife are kidnapped and held for ransom. The effort to rescue the girl and her mother ends tragically, and Courtland merely exists, his days consumed with guilt. Many years later, still grieving over his loss, he returns to Florence, the city where he first met his wife, and he meets a young woman who bears a remarkable resemblance to her.

Wow. Really a bad movie. On so many levels. Cliff Robertson has one facial expression...the overblown artsy shots and the overblown music. It's campy I guess but really bad. Don't waste your time.

A complicated grift that is predicated on incest, OBSESSION drew me to it not only because of its showcase of the pre-TAXI DRIVER screenwriter work of Paul Schrader, but also because it features the penultimate score of the great Bernard Herrmann. The takeaway here for me is the bilious yellow that adorns the art on the DVD case. Bile is what this movie conveys.

The subject matter is rather creepy. The film is no way on par with the suspense generated by Hitchcock's film.
