Set against dramatic European backdrops, "The Bourne Identity" is the story of a man (Matt Damon), salvaged, near death, from the ocean by the crew of an Italian fishing boat. When he recuperates, the man suffers from total amnesia. He is completely without identity or background, but possesses a range of extraordinary talents in fighting, linguistic skills and self-defense that speak of a dangerous past. He sets out on a desperate search - assisted by the initially rebellious Marie (Franka Potente) to discover who he really is, and why he is being pursued by assassins.
