Storyline

Chantel is happy: her son's away at school playing soccer, she and her husband get along, her neighbor Agnès is her best friend, and her job at a government office is easy. When her husband is laid off and she wonders for how long, her office pal Jackie recommends Alban, a psychic (and compulsive gambler), who promptly tells Chantel of a curse on her that will take three sessions (and 10,000 FF) to dispel. Through happenstance, she meets Alban's half-brother; thinking she is following the psychic predictions, she tries to start an affair with him. She also undergoes Alban's exorcism, and soon, terrible things indeed start to happen. Is there any way out of her misery? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

An entertaining film...
1 August 2002 | by See all my reviews

I've seen this film because there were nothing better on TV. What decide me not to go to bed is the actors. I know that a film with Dieudonné is always amusing. It is about a woman (played by Emmanuelle Béart) whose husband lost his job. With a piece of advice given by her colleague (played by Anémone), she decides to see a clairvoyant (played by Dieudonné) to know whether her husband to find a new job. This clairvoyant who is in fact a crook understand her credulity and decide to tell her that she is in danger, danger which could be past with his care. This film, which is an entertaining film, wreck all the clairvoyants of the world. I wonder if clairvoyants regulars who have seen the film are still regulars.
