Enrico Lo Verso,
In France, the single translator Diane Siprien adopts an Asian baby named Liu-San in a foundation directed by Sybille Weber. Years later, a weird mark appears on the boy's chest and Diane and Liu share their dreadful nightmares. Diane is assigned for a three-day job in German and she leaves Liu with her friend Sybille. However, while going to the airport, Diane finds Liu hidden in the backseat and startles with an eagle flying toward the windshield, crashing her car. Liu falls into a coma and his digital recorder records the boy speaking in an unknown dialect. When Diane searches the translation and the origins of Liu, she is surrounded by mysterious murders. She discovers that the dialect is from the mystic Mongolian Tseven tribe and that Liu is a powerful Observer; further, he is in danger, threatened by sorcerers that need the boy for their Council of the Stone.Written by

Inyt how this french movie looks like a X Files episode ! (dad)
For X-Files lovers, you will find anything you like: paranormal powers, folklore, gifted child, conspiracy, military bases, forest by nights However, put in action by french cinema, I left disappointed. OK I knew beforehand that it was a scary movie but with such a title, I expected to go to Rome and Vatican. So going instead in Kazakshtan is not my cup of tea because I don't have connections with this culture However I appreciated to see the large, bare landscape and typical town
Next I wanted a recent movie with La Belluci as I stopped watching her in 2005 and I'm surprised to see that this one was shot in 2006! I just wanted to see if she was able to act again instead of being the silent, sexy lady with the dynamism of a elephant! OK, here she speaks and in addition Russian, her accent is still charming and soft but honestly, she drags the movie down with her lack of vitality: always head down, never nervous, it's irritating to be with such a slug whatever sexy she can be!
At the end, I found that Deneuve was much more involved as for one time, she put her outside her comfort zone! I support paranormal french movies but I think it would have been much better with a more involved and reactive mother instead of La Belluci!
