Algebra would be easier than piecing together this no-budget British espionage thriller.
On a deserted English beach under slate-grey skies and buffeting winds a woman (Alex Reid) wakes up, with no memory of who she is until a stranger, also washed ashore, starts pursuing her. In flashback we learn that both of them are connected to a surveillance job in London, though the various duplications of scene and character make interpretation a not entirely enjoyable challenge. To mention echoes of Notorious and The Conversation would be to flatter Simon Welsford's first feature, but his keen sense of place and atmosphere point to a career worth watching.
