Here we have a James Bond type spy film with a CIA agent who, saved by an Italian fishing boat crew (in which we find an 'evergreen', unchanged Orso Maria Guerrini), has lost his memory.
Once on solid ground he understands that someone wants him dead; he realises he can use weapons, knows martial arts, can speak a great many languages but every time is amazed at his capabilities.
The Bourne girl (Marie) is a girl met by chance at the American embassy, who, for money, helps him escape.
Differing from James Bond, Jason Bourne does not have incredible tools and objects with which to defeat his killer but only his sensitivity and his capacity – due to his work, but he doesn't know that – to instantly understand that something is about to happen.
The dubbing direction isn't bad but it's not worthy of merit or otherwise; everything proceeds without any hindrance, without there being anything either really lovely or really horrid which makes us sit up in our seats.
As far as the adaptation is concerned: usually, in action films of this type there aren't sentences which are too cultured or noble; it would not have been difficult, with a bit more attention, to render the dialogues a little less out of place.
Three examples to explain the above:
