Beautiful images... stale story
22 March 2000 | by MilhaudSee all my reviews

The main character is an ex-rock star. He stopped singing when his brother died in an accident - probably a suicide. He feels guilty. One day, on the beach, he finds a vase. A female genie comes out of it and offers him three wishes. The only thing he can wish is that his brother come back. But that's impossible.

The whole movie is built around the theme of being able to live again when someone near you has died. The message is profound and interesting, but the theme is not really new, and I can't say that it is renewed or made poignant in this static film.

However, one must say that the Charles Finch knows how to catch beautiful images : throughout the film, he shoots many great natural scenes and numerous extraordinary tight frames (Christopher Lambert is downright photogenic), also playing with the fabulous light of Italy.
