    Hi all, I watched a TV movie in the late 90s, a two-part tv movie which is set in period of art deco or the early twentieth century. Apparently a US program.......

    A rich young girl is having some emotional/mental problem and hired a psychologist to help her. He devoted a lot of time and finally healed her, and, in the process, they fell in love. As a result, he gets to be with her wherever she goes, including all the high life associated with her. In one scene, a friend commented on the shirt that he wore, he replied, “I only wear the best.” It does not portray him as a greedy man though, it is just that he starts to live in a life with his rich and pretty patient.

    Unfortunately, she found another guy and broke the relationship with him. He was in too deep, and still follows her and watches her with her new boy friend from a distance. When the new guy cautioned it to her, she just replied, “Don’t worry, it’s his job.” (or something like that). The ending scene is especially memorable: the close up of some leaves floating on the river, with a little bit of ripple or small waves bathed in the evening light.

    The movie is set in a very tasteful mood, with a melancholic feel to it, very nice. I have only watched this once on TV in Malaysia, loved every bit of it, but remember nothing about its title nor names of any actors or the director. Would really appreciate if someone can lead me to find it.

    thanks but no, it's not a thriller, nor a restricted programme. The mood and the period feels similar to The Great Gatsby--think Art Deco--, a very melancholic feel, very tasteful. More like a TV movie than a big screen one.
