Storyline

Triggered by the death of a family member a young woman embarks on a singular journey of helping people who are about to die. The dying have nothing to lose and need lasting moments of intimacy that Simone finds herself willing to give at no cost. But Boris won't let her get away with it quite that easily. He realizes how well she hides behind those intense but short lived relationships. He won't hesitate to provoke her in a violent burst. Written by Anonymous

Original and a bit provocative
25 June 2011 | by disqcineSee all my reviews

Despite an occasional technical weakness (notably in continuity), LES SIGNES VITAUX is a rewarding watching experience thanks to the originality of the thematic, the convincing acting and overall off-beat treatment.

Yes, this little fiction with many documentary aspects proves to be refreshing and surprising in many ways.

On the other hand the very final scene was a bit disappointing, as if the authors didn't really know how to conclude. Also, what comes close to spoil the whole thing is the poor and irrelevant musical comment. Too bad the production could not afford to hire a better composer.
