As helmed by Gilles Bourdos, this supernatural thriller - a Franco-German-Canadian co-production - continues John Malkovich's career-long tradition of playing offbeat, enigmatic figures with a menacing air. Romain Duris stars as Nathan Del Amico, an attorney doubly haunted by his past, as the survivor of a near-death experience as a child and a witness of his own baby's death. As a product of these crises, Nathan has buried himself in his work and now suffers from a bad case of familial estrangement from his separated wife Evangeline Lilly and little girl. Then the mysterious Dr. Kay (Malkovich) turns up, claiming that he has clairvoyant visions informing him when someone is about to die - a gift as a "messenger" that enables him to make each person's transition out of life a smooth and easy one. Suddenly, upon hearing Kay's claims, Nathan feels his death-laden memories double in intensity - and grows increasingly convinced that either he now stands on the verge of death, or that he has the same messenger abilities as Kay.

While I have not been a big fan of John Malkovich, I am a big fan of Romain Duris. The story, however, is what makes the film and John Malkovich is well cast. Since this is an English speaking role for French actor Romain Duris, this threw me a little at first. He is such a good actor though, that I really did not care. It was worth the whole film to hear him swearing in English. Evangeline Lilly is beautiful as always. In the story, JM plays a medical doctor who can see people who are going to die and finds RD's character. This seems strange at first, but as the story unfolds, we come to understand the real purpose of this. And the beauty of the story is that there is a purpose for this. It has a wonderful message.
