Set in the fields of Devon and the WW1 battlefields of Flanders, two brothers fall for the same girl while contending with the pressures of their feudal family life, the war, and the price of courage and cowardice.
Psychologist Margaret Matheson and her assistant study paranormal activity, which leads them to investigate a world-renowned psychic who has resurfaced years after his toughest critic mysteriously passed away.
Robert De Niro,
Special Agent Sally Biggs has a secret. She can rewind time--a few seconds--whenever she wants. It's enough to make her a celebrity at the FBI and control almost everything in her life. But deep down, she's afraid of the pain that comes from the things no one can control. Her worst fears are realized when her scientist husband disappears mysteriously. Paranormal apparitions begin to surround her. Strangers with terrifying technologies know her secret, and want her dead. Her only clue is her husband's ghost--who she follows onto a battlefield she never knew existed. She must discover the awesome truth that ties all the mysteries together, before the fabric of her being--and the ones she loves most--fade out of reality. Written by
I've registered here just to be able to add an additional voice to the crowd rooting for this movie.
If there is an antipode to "reality suspense only goes so far" this is it. Pat Rushin and Terry Gilliam leave few questions open and provide a scary alternative to the usual development of similar movies.
The plot is fresh, bearing some resemblance to 12 Monkeys, and will bind you to your chair. Even though there are some inconsistencies in the actors performance, the overall execution is very good, possibly excellent (in my opinion): the plot is cohesive, the environment and situations believable, the suspense is just right and the atmosphere immersive.
A must see for (scientifically inclined) fans of time-travelling movies that have a longer attention span than the average teenager and like to think.
I'd love to see both a prequel and a sequel expanding on the world the team has created, even if it would be an animation.
