Storyline

Recounts the life and loves of the physician, astrologer, and famed prognosticator; his encounters with medieval science and the Inquisition; and his early struggles with his visions of the future. The film is set in France in the 16th century during one of the periodic plague outbreaks (as opposed to the Black Death [mid-14th-century Europe] or the Black Plague [mid-17th-century London]). The film depicts Nostradamus's rise in influence, because of both his success in treating plague and his predictions, culminating in his appointment as court physician to Charles IX of France.

You have to understand the film
24 December 2003 | by See all my reviews

I wonder if jimg-9 has even understood the film - I seriously doubt it.... Jimg-9 for your information, Amanda Plummer is not the queen of England... She plays queen Cathrine of Medici - which was the queen of France.... Are you sure you have seen the film???

For every one else - see Nostradamus!!! You get a chance to see some of the prophesies Nostradamus made in the 16th century and it makes you think... Why did all these things happen, when the future was foretold....???

Nostradamus has also foreseen the birth of a boy with the highest IQ in the world - a handweapon with more power than an A-bomb and flying cars...

So far, his prophesies have come true - and it should make you stop and think... Can we make this a better world knowing what we are heading for?!?!?!

And for jimg-9: Next time you´re in the mood to see a film - please make sure that you have an adult beside you to explain the film to you... Perhaps then you´ll get it right...
