Storyline

In 1930s restless Paris, the American sisters and spiritual mediums Laura and Kate Barlow are an authentic psychic act touring pre-war Europe, where before an astounded audience, sceptical but curious spectators join them onstage for a hypnotic séance with the dearly departed. During a performance, a well-off film producer, André Korben, dazzled by the sisters' genuine psychic ability, will hire them for an ambitious film project which would contribute to the evolution of the French film industry, just by capturing even the faintest suggestion of a real paranormal manifestation. Little by little, the war creeps in and Korben's reputation rests entirely on the success of this single effort, nevertheless, are the Barlow Sisters nothing but an elaborate act or do they actually possess the dark gift?

Just a Sketch Of A Movie
29 March 2017 | by vanapa9See all my reviews

What this movie needs is more SUBSTANCE! We haven't a GHOST of a chance of being drawn into this play, because there is only loosely knit ideas..a faint line outlining what may become...something..but what ?? What a waste of talent!! Teaming Ms. Depp and Ms. Portman had me waiting impatiently to view this movie. typically...my favorite actors choose worthwhile projects. Natalie's last couple of endeavors, have left MUCH to be desired.

This movie needs to be connected...those dots of ideas need to be connected by story line we can understand and follow. Leave the abstract included....but fill it in with good ol creative action and dialogue that we can follow and appreciate. Better yet..make the story line COMPELLING !! Who better than Ms. Portman and Ms. Depp to carry a compelling theme ?

We must give Ms. Portman and Ms. Depp their due for taking such a bold chance..experimenting perhaps. But, ..IF they want to continue to be able to take such risks, they better choose a WINNER next few times round, or their names and past acting performances will be a distant, fond memory. Remember her?...Loved her in that one !
