Nathan, a brilliant New York lawyer who leads a life of professional success, but his private life is pretty dismal since he divorced Claire, his only love. Until he meets Doctor Kay, a mysterious doctor who introduces himself as a "Messenger." He claims that he can sense when certain people are about to die, and that he is sent to help them put their life in order before it's too late. Nathan doesn't believe a word of this, but soon afterwards he witnesses some disconcerting scenes which seem to confirm the doctor's claims. Written by
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 »

Another French failed attempt to paranormal (rental)
Thus this movie is very similar to « Les Revenants » : excellent french cast but terrible story and awful pace ! The story is also reminiscent of the X-files episode 6.10 « Titonus », which proves once more time that this show was just extraordinary releasing one movie each week ! Here, the ability is salvaged by a complicated and unbelievable plot! As a french movie, the movie is deadly slow with long, meaningless scenes. As it happens in America, it gets also all the defects of this cinema: mobile conversations, colorization, wealthy characters!! Malkovich is a bad choice because his strange attitude just doesn't fit with being a doctor! The only positive thing here is Romain! He has kept his sensibility and inner fire so he is as great as usual!
