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?

Two sisters in the life of a French filmmaker!
24 February 2018 | by Reno-RanganSee all my reviews

Very interesting characters. The pre WWII event. About two orphan sisters trying to make a living. The best they came up with is to help the people to make contact with their loved ones who had died. So far so successful. Especially when a notable filmmaker takes interest on them, their lives begin to change. Those were what shown to us in the rest of the film. But there comes a complication, especially the bond between the sisters was tested, and followed by the filmmaker's reputation.

There were many English dialogues. The casting was so good. The lead three was great. But there's something about the story. Overall, it looked decent, but I don't know that they cinematically well transformed. Looks like a literature kind of tale, yet it was not adapted from any such source. That is what's missing in here. You know, the good writer's perspective. They know how to take the story in a right direction.

I felt they messed the conclusion. All the sudden too much had happened. Even the twist did not feel like it was a twist. All the above, there's no strong emotional effect. The middle section was so plain. All I felt was the two sisters struggle. The rest did not make the film shine. Could be one time watchable, but I'm not sure you would like it at the end.

5/10
