Set in contemporary Los Angeles as well as the Los Angeles of the 1940s, Dead Again explores a romance between two star-crossed lovers -- and the doomed passion they shared in their last lifetime. Los Angeles detective Mike Church (Kenneth Branagh) comes to the aid of mute, amnesia-victim Grace (Emma Thompson) and falls in love with her. He sets out to discover her true identity and the source of her terrible nightmares. Mike is aided in his investigation by hypnotist/furniture dealer Franklyn Madison (Derek Jacobi) who discovers that in a past life Grace was Margaret Strauss (also played by Thompson), who may have been mudered by her husband Roman (Branagh).~Linda Rasmussen

I LOVED this movie when it first came out, and owned it for ages on VHS, but I haven't watched it in years!! When I saw it on DVD I had to buy it, and I still love this movie even after all these years!!
This review is from Dead Again [DVD] 
I would recommend this to a friend
Rated 5 out of 5 stars
This was a very good thriller. When I first watched it, I thought it would end on way. At the end of the movie - when I was totally suprised at the ending - I had to rewind (back in the day of VHS rentals) and watch again from the beginning. Kenneth & Emma did a fabulous job. And I also think this wsa one of Robin WIlliams' first 'serious' roles.
VERY good movie!
