Romain Duris' first English-speaking role. The actor relished the experience and felt that when he was in sync with his character his English was good. See more »
In the scene where Nathan approaches an ambulance from behind, his feet are reflected in the shiny metal at the bottom of the vehicle's rear doors. Also reflected are the feet of the cameraman following him. See more »
Over the end credits music, you hear an ambulance winding through traffic. See more »
throughout the entire movie romain duris sounds like he has throat cancer when speaking (and what's with those shirts & slacks in every scene).
john malkovich looks like john malkovich wearing a john malkovich putty mask!
the plot just keeps meandering from one location to the next with always the same message. and the deaths of others actually becomes comical because each one is so expected! just pure nonsense considering the 'message' dr kay brings! and the message is something everybody already knows.
how i sat through 104 minutes of this often incoherent mess, i do not know. the opening scene of the lake, children at play, then tragic accident is the only truly powerful and irresistible part of the movie.
good luck if you choose to watch this piece of mess!
