Nathan, a brilliant New York lawyer who leads a life of professional success, but his private life is pretty dismal since he divorced Claire, his only love. Until he meets Doctor Kay, a mysterious doctor who introduces himself as a "Messenger." He claims that he can sense when certain people are about to die, and that he is sent to help them put their life in order before it's too late. Nathan doesn't believe a word of this, but soon afterwards he witnesses some disconcerting scenes which seem to confirm the doctor's claims.Written by
In the scene where Nathan approaches an ambulance from behind, his feet are reflected in the shiny metal at the bottom of the vehicle's rear doors. Also reflected are the feet of the cameraman following him. See more »

First of all I'm no movie critic or someone pretending to be expert in the cinematic art I'm just a regular Joe who likes a good movie, with that being said I have to admit that this is one of my all time favorite movies. I like pretty much everything in it:
I find the plot to be quite unique and fascinating. It kept me in nescience until the very end (and this is something I experience rarely those days)
The acting is at its best imo, Evangeline Lilly and John Malkovich are mesmerizing don't get me wrong Romain Duris was great too, maybe an idea lesser :)
Atmosphere is just breathtaking - mysterious, kind of noar and very, very real.
Soundtrack is nothing short of perfect, I have nothing else to say just WOW.
Overall this is one of the few films that makes me shed a tear every time I watch it (me & my girlfriend if I have to be honest) and I do recommend it with all of my heart.
P.S. Sorry for my poor English :(
