Storyline

"Joe Smith, American" lives in a Los Angeles suburb and works at an aircraft plant. One night Joe hears a voice cut in on a radio program: "This is God. I'll be with you for the next few days." It turns out, everyone in the world listening to any radio heard the same thing. More messages come; some people react positively, others negatively.

He moves in mysterious ways
30 June 2008 | by See all my reviews

Funny how James Whitmore resembles Spencer Tracy! He is ideally cast as the guy-next-door with his sweet wife and their lovable little boy.

"Next voice you hear" is one of Wellman's weirdest movies ,but he had already displayed his faith in God :for instance ,Carl the sailor in "Safe in hell" (what a title!) tells her love Gilda that He did help them (and He did in a way).

The good idea is that we (the audience) never hear HIS voice :it's all in reported speech .There's nothing spectacular,no end -of -the world-trick (although mom hints at Orson Welles and his "war of the worlds"),just every day life and the fact that God speaks to the world using the different languages .

Mrs Smith is expecting a child ;the boy seems to be afraid of losing his mom to his new brother/sister;the father wants to go to confession.And on the seventh day...
