Drei Menschen werden mit der Frage konfrontiert, ob es ein Leben nach dem Tod gibt: Eine französische Journalistin hat ein Nahtoderlebnis, ein Junge aus London verliert seinen Zwillingsbruder, ein in San Francisco lebender Mann versucht, trotz seiner Fähigkeit, als Medium mit Toten in Kontakt zu treten, ein normales Leben zu führen. Im Zentrum der zunächst parallel montierten, sich später kreuzenden Geschichten stehen keine Spekulationen über das Jenseits; vielmehr fragt der Film, wie die Konfrontation mit dem Tod das Leben verändert. Das mit ruhiger, unaufgeregter Anteilnahme inszenierte Drama zeichnet eindringliche Porträts von Figuren, die an einem Wendepunkt ihres Lebens nach Orientierung suchen. [film-dienst]
