FASCINATION

Jacqueline Bisset stars in this thriller from director Klaus Menzel, and if that doesnít tip you off to its quality, I donít know what will. Bisset, who is now 60, looks great, and thatís the nicest thing I can say about this movie. In a plot that seems to have been lifted from a Harlequin novel, she plays a wealthy woman whose husband dies in a swimming accident. A few short weeks later, she remarries, and her son (Adam Garcia) becomes suspicious that his fatherís death was somehow planned. Those suspicions are shared by his new stepsister (Alice Evans), with whom he begins an affair (at their parentsí wedding, no less). Thereís lots of sex, and some unintentionally hilarious poetry that provided the filmís most entertaining moment. (It was at this point that the audience at my preview screening started laughing, and they didnít stop until the credits rolled.) Menzel tries to twist his tale into a crazy web of deceit, but if his actors canít bother to look interested enough to figure out who did what to whom, I donít know why the audience should. The most fascinating thing about this movie is why they thought anyone would want to see it. Not many Bostonians did; it closed after just one week at the Fresh Pond. (95 minutes)
