Matt Damon stars in this action thriller directed by Doug Liman. Badly wounded and suffering from amnesia, Jason Bourne (Damon) is pulled out of the Mediterranean by fishermen, able to recall neither who he is nor what happened to him. His only clue to his identity is the number of a Swiss bank account which has been etched into a device implanted in his body. Following the lead to Zurich, he discovers money, passports and a gun waiting for him, but also earns the attention of the security services and has to leave in a hurry. He then persuades a young woman (Franka Potente) to drive him to Paris, where he hopes to find out his true identity and discover the reason why the CIA are taking such an interest in him.
