Storyline

Seismologist Alice Bradley is despatched to her home town of Baie-Comeau, Quebec, to investigate why the tides have stopped flowing there. She is reunited with an old college friend, reporter Catherine Rolland, and meets roguish pilot Marc Vandal. It soon becomes apparent that the problems with the tide coincided with a variety of odd behaviour amongst the Baie-Comeau residents, and Alice gradually realises that the solution to the mystery may be stranger than she ever anticipated.

Deceiving
26 April 2003 | by (Montréal, Québec) – See all my reviews

When I saw the trailer of the movie and read the synopsis, I thought "Wow! This is going to be such a great movie!", but let me tell you I did not get what I was expecting.

The movie is a never-ending circle: at each time there is a new element, it ends up just like the other one before "because it's a movie about the resemblance of love and the tides, the sea" (as Manon Briand said herself in French when I saw her). It was a falsely profound movie, falling into total esotericism.

There were some funny parts, but the movie was not a comedy. The scenery was nice and the quality of the images was good too. The actors were good, but they were playing characters for whom I was unable to develop any kind of sympathy.

I believe this movie will be appreciated by many (and I was already proven that), but I think it's only OK to watch but not great at all.

[Actually, Luc Besson did about nothing in the movie. It was only his studio that helped a bit at realizing the film.]
