Movie Reviews

Saved by the actors
D. Hartley | Seattle, WA USA | 03/17/2003
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Jonathan Nossiter's "Signs & Wonders" can't decide if it wants to be Ingmar Bergman's "Scenes From A Marriage" or Nicholas Roeg's "Don't Look Now". The amazing Stellan Skarsgard, who can skate effortlessly between "Dogme 95" and Hollywood without a slip, plays the married American businessman, living in Greece with his family, who is having a passionate affair with a co-worker (ice-queen Deborah Unger). Long-time art-house favorite Charlotte Rampling gives a believable, measured performance as the betrayed wife who eventually finds her own lover. Unfortunately,after the involving first third, the story meanders into too many dead-end directions. For instance,in one scene Unger drops a bomb on Skarsgard that hints at noirish intrigue and conspiracy, but this is never explored, nor mentioned again. An underlying theme of destiny, precognition and/or superstition is interwoven with the story, but if all the ominous foreshadowing is meant to point to the completely out-of-left-field "Bad Seed" ending, then the film is ulitmately false and little more than a pretentious excercise with pretty Mediterranean scenery. Skarsgard and Rampling have such great on-screen chemistry that one hopes they can work together again with better material. A guarded recommendation."

"More than sex, food or survival, we are creatures driven to find meaning in our lives (or so it's said by those who claim to know such things). A recent film that tap into that mindset, with varying degrees of success, is now available in a fine digital edition.In SIGNS & WONDERS, the once happy 17 year marriage of Marjorie (Charlotte Rampling) and Alec (Stellan Skarsgard) comes undone and Alec begins making decisions based only on coincidences and superstitions. Complex and strangely mesmerizing, this original film is especially unsettling as Alec ever more desperately seeks to understand signs that he believes will explain what is happening to him and give meaning to the tragedy that has befallen him, his adulterous wife and their two children. Special features include director Jon Nossiter's video diary.Different and disturbing because it hits close to the desperate sanity we all share in our fragile and perilous world view."

"The worst movie I've ever seen. I was hoping that Stellan Skaarsgard would take off the yellow suit and burn it, but he didn't. He did however, finally take it off. I wish I never bought it."
