    David Locke is a television reporter on location in Africa. It's hot, humid, and everything seems to be dirty.

After deciding that his own life wasn't worth living anymore, he switches identities with the dead man, taking the man's passport (with his own photo swapped in), his luggage, and his appointment schedule. Leaving Africa, he heads off to keep the dead man's appointments, hoping that his new life will be more interesting than his old one was.

This is my favourite movie. I have been contenplating about it since I was fourteen in 1977. The movie was shown in Soviet Union cinemas (and in the occupied Estonia) by some miracle (soviets trying to demonstrate to Italian communists how democratic the regime was, I suppose). Jack Nicholson is a very great actor and I love the story and I love Barcelona. The only sad thing is that there hasn't been among the great movies JN has played in the one that would be so impressive for me now, 30 years later. Something to tell as if the David Locke's story had ended up somehow in a different way? smile

Yeah me too, I bought this to add to my Jack collection (helped by the fact that on the latest DVD release he looks very nice on the cover!) but was a bit shocked at the ending. I suppose it depends on the viewer's perception but I'd rather it be clear-cut.
