A young policewoman slowly goes insane while tracking down an elusive serial rapist/killer through Italy when she herself becomes a victim of the brutal man's obsession.
The painting that Anna literally steps into is a Rembrant painting of 17th Century policemen, entitled 'Night Watch'. The painting that causes Anna to faint in the museum is by Brueghel, it's called 'Landscape with the Fall of Icarus'.
Though featuring prominently during the film's opening sequence set at the Uffizi in Florecne, Peter Bruegel's 'Landscape with the Fall of Icarus' is actually housed at the Royal Museum of Fine Arts of Belgium in Brussels.
The DVD version released on DVD in the UK in May 1999 contains all the material which had been pre-cut from the UK video version. Since the uncut version has never been submitted to the British Board of Film Classification, this version was withdrawn and re-released in a cut form. The new cut release has a colour graphic on the disc itself, whereas the uncut version had a black and white label. The 2010 Arrow reissue featured the full uncut version.
