Vienna-based American psychoanalyst Alex Linden (Art Garfunkel) is involved in a passionate affair with Milena Flaherty (Theresa Russell). When Milena is brought to hospital after overdosing on pills, apparently in a suicide attempt, detectives suspect foul play on the part of Alex. As Alex sits in the hospital being questioned by the detectives, he recounts the events to the investigating officer, who must decide whether her condition is the result of attempted suicide or something more sinister...
Through flashbacks, we see the events leading up to Milena's overdose; her stormy and intensely sexual relationship with Alex, her increasing unfaithfulness, her heavy drinking and numerous affairs. Should Alex be charged with attempted murder, or is he telling the truth that Milena did it all herself?

Bad Timing for me - Bad Timing review by EF

This was a disappointment after seeing the film in my youth. It was disjointed, nonarrtive structure and I foundit difficlut thus to get engaged with the weird conversations. Not my style at all. The director couln't take the camera off Art Garfunkel whose face is interesting but just ddind;t deliver. I didn't like or engage with the heresa Russell character though she was obviulsy dangerously loopy. It was the film that beame boring and unengagin and in fact, I went to sleeep before the end. Very disappointing and for me, this was "Bad timing" in the sense that it was a waste of time.
