In 1959, businessman Michael and his wife are celebrating their anniversary when his daughter and wife are kidnapped and tragically killed in the rescue attempt. Years later, still grieving over his loss, Michael meets a young woman in Florence who bears a remarkable resemblance to his late wife.

Our take

Doppelgängers and double-crosses abound in director Brian De Palma and screenwriter Paul Schrader’s dazzling tribute to Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo. Featuring a magnificent score from Bernard Herrmann, Obsession is a deliriously melodramatic high-tension thriller from the master of the macabre.
