The Chameleon

Synopsis: Based on a true story, this film looks at what happens when a serial impostor in Europe passes himself off as a missing boy from Texas. The missing boy's family welcomes him as their son, but the FBI quickly realizes something is amiss. Does the family's eagerness to accept the impostor mean they are just happy to have their loved one back, or are they trying to hide a more sinister event - perhaps what happened to their boy? But even more - who is this impostor who has talked his way into the United States and a family's home?
Director(s): Jean-Paul Salomé

- What are they digging?

"To find a body.

It's bad for business.

A beer?

No, thanks. I have no thirst.

Who says you must be thirsty to drink a cold beer ...

Lord of the FBI?


First we check the identity of the boy.

As soon as we confirm, we will contact their parents.

It has no identification and has not said a word.

Take, eat something.

You need to eat.

My name is Mark Nicholas Randall. I have sixteen.

The name of my mother is Kimberly Miller.

My sister's name is Kathy Jansen.

I was kidnapped.

Kimberly Miller?


I was raped, tortured me. I was afraid all the time.

I just want to go home.

- Mom ...

What are you doing here?

Is not there anyone?

Nicky say they found.

Based on a true story

Your sister is here.

Nicky ...

Hi, guys. Hey, baby. Hi Nick.

How are you?

Brian and I thought it would be better to stay with us for now.

- Right, Brian?


We have a room ready for you.

Mom is just not ready to go with it ... yet.

You need time to get used to the idea.

You'll be fine with us, Nicky.

Welcome back, Nicky. Welcome home.

Be careful when using the shower

Hot and cold water are reversed.

Brian has been saying for years that would settle.

What are you babbling, Kathy?

You act as if Nicky had never been to sleep here before.

Yes, Of course!

I know, it's just that I'm so happy ... I do not know what I say, sorry.

I love you, mom.

Let's go.

We went fishing.

Baby, it's very good.

What's up, man? Do not you like the food of your sister?

The fried chicken is your favorite.

Brian, let it calm. He is no longer a child, his tastes changed.

Well, I'll eat tomorrow.

Me ... I come here often?

I cannot remember it.

Memories come and go.

Sometimes I have flashes of memory y. ..

other times it's as if large parts of my life missing.

But the doctor says it makes sense after what I went through.

The memories come back gradually.

Hey, wait a second.

Check the album.

So ... to see what we have here.

Well, then ...

here you are, you were turning ten years ...

- Is not that cute?


God ... this is the trip you made to Disneyland.

Remember that?


Here's Mom and Brendan.

You have not forgotten about Brendan, right?

Brian is his brother.

Security will come to see you soon.

No rush. Right, Nick?


Who is Mark Nicholas Randall?

A boy of sixteen.

Was found after he disappeared four years ago.

It was a kidnapping. When he disappeared, he sought the BRPD.

Did it occur so suddenly? "After four years?

I live and safe? It is a miracle.

You mean you still believe in miracles.

Oh, yes. Absolutely.

Hey, just like old times, right?

Take, bring the corn mother.

I like it.

Come on, come on.


I'm sorry.

Come, bring me another.

Not very cool, huh?

All right.

Clumsy as ever.

I attend.

Do you have another beer for mom?

Yes, in the refrigerator. Take it.

Not too cold. That much I remember.

She is so happy to see us all here I can barely believe it.

Yeah, me neither.

Look ... it takes time.

More than us.

Yes, Of course!

It was Brendan. Is coming here.


Will would open for me?

I do not want to see what Nicky, right?

I'll deal with that, right? Trust me.

Yes, but ... is not not trust you, it's just that ...

I'll bring it in, right?

No, I must go, right?

This is your own damn fault, take it out of here.

Do not give me orders. This is my home and do what I want.

I give a damn what you think. Do I have fear.

A hero is that? Any kind of saint?

Is that what you're trying to be?

Get out of my house.
