Trivia

When Marieke mails the letter, there is a very short close-up, where you can read the address of Juan del Campo, meaning "John of the Field", living in Plaza de la Mierda, meaning "Shit Plaza". See more »

Goofs

The sound effect used for the British police cars was inaccurate. British police cars did once sound like that but that was over twenty years ago. They now sound similar to American police vehicles. See more »

Not bad
1 October 1998 | by JimFKSee all my reviews

A bit of a pleasant surprise (considering its lack of theatrical release in the NY area), Incognito is a fairly involving drama/thriller involving a disturbed artist who's gotten so entangled in the underworld of art forgery he's never formed an identity of his own...he does a great Rembrandt, but Irene Jacob spots it as a fake, which both infuriates and attracts him...a murder occurs and the pursuit is on, with him trying to clear his name and trying to become a "real" artist...Patric is a little too brooding and pouty, making him hard to like for much of the film (C. Sheen or J. Depp could make him a much more sympathetic "bad" boy), but beautiful location work (widescreen, too -- I saw the laserdisc -- on video it's probably a mess) and the lovely & talented Ms. Jacob make it a surprisingly unique experience...check it out.
