Storyline

Seismologist Alice Bradley is despatched to her home town of Baie-Comeau, Quebec, to investigate why the tides have stopped flowing there. She is reunited with an old college friend, reporter Catherine Rolland, and meets roguish pilot Marc Vandal. It soon becomes apparent that the problems with the tide coincided with a variety of odd behaviour amongst the Baie-Comeau residents, and Alice gradually realises that the solution to the mystery may be stranger than she ever anticipated.

This movie is just too inconsistent
9 October 2005 | by sansaySee all my reviews

First it starts with a great sci-fi looking introduction set in Japan. Then we get thrown into a little place in Quebec, and everything falls apart into a mystic's delirium. Oh well. I don't need to add anything to this comment since Greg Novik wrote it all in here already. Thanks Greg for saving me the effort with your excellent review.

I also was quite puzzled and disappointed since this movie was rated 7 at the time when I rented it. I just don't get it, usually high ratings at IMDb are well deserved. Not so in this case.

I can add this though, I have watched a few movies from Quebec lately and this is definitely one of the worst. Save your time... watch Quebec-Montreal for example, much more clever and fun!
