Andie MacDowell portrays a woman who is tormented by the ghost of her abusive, alcoholic husband. She must come to terms with the past if she is to find peace and love. Samuel le Bihan is a French engineer who she finds renewed love with and Tim Roth plays her deceased husband who shows us that hate can live on after death. Perhaps forgiveness is the only way to overcome the demons that haunt us from the grave. Written by Angel

Death is not always as final as we think it is
9 April 2005 | by sol1218See all my reviews

**SPOILERS** After Kathy McFarland's husband Jermey was killed, when he drunkenly ran his car into a telephone pole, her life and finances took a turn for the worse. Not that Jeremy was a perfect husband but he was the bread-winner of the family and the one who Kathy's three children, Maggie Fiona and especially Frank, needed at this very critical time in their lives.

Going to work at Into a Chemical as a lab technician Kathy runs into Dora a very strange and interesting woman named Dora who seems to know a lot more about her life then she would want to talk to her about. Later Kathy rents out the cottage attached to her home to Mark, a French engineer who's working for a US firm. Soon Kathy starts to get these phone calls at precisely 12:15 A.M at night she also starts to see the number "8" everywhere she looks. She even sees "8" with a microscope looking at one-cell organisms forming at the bottom of a petri dish where she works at the lab; "8" was Jermeys favorite number.

Talking with Dora at work and later at a party she gave in her homes Kathy is told that Jeremy is somehow trying to get in contact with her. At first Kathy doesn't at all believe Dora and thinks she's some kind of a kook. Later when she runs into Furgus O'Brian who's life Jermey saved from house fire at the Moon River Hotel. Furgus tells Kathy the same thing that Dora told her earlier before; Jeremy is trying to get in touch with her.

Thing start to really get weird when Kathy, with the help of Mark, finds the number of who's been calling her every night at 12:15; It's from the "Moon River" hotel where Furgus works. Kathy also finds out from Jeremys death certificate that he died from his injuries in the car accident at exactly 12:15 A.M! Going to the "Moon River" hotel to confront Furgus about him harassing her Kathy finds out that he never worked there! Later going to the O'Brian home Kathy sees Furgus and after letting him have it about his annoying phone calls he seems undeterred and tells her that it was Jeremy who told him to call her!

Jeremy reason for trying to get in touch with her is that he wan't her forgiveness for all the trouble he caused Kathy and the kids when he was alive. Seeing Mrs. O'Brian, Furgus' mother,later at the house Kathy is stunned to find out that her son Furgus has been dead for six months! Then who was Kathy talking to just a minute ago? Furgus's Ghost?

So/So ghost movie thats a bit confusing in it's ending and leaves you up in the air to who just both Dora and Mark are. Are they real people or some kind of disembodied spirits like Fergus. Is this their attempt to get Kathy back together with Jeremy and forgive him in order to free his soul from the torment he's suffering, due to his treatment of Kathy when he was alive.

The ending of the movie tries to straighten out a lot of the uneven and confusing sub-plots in the movie with Kathy and Mark back together after she almost got killed in a traffic accident and Jeremy finally having his actions forgiven by Kathy and being able to "move on", like those of us watching the movie, to better things.
