Review by NicoleG
3½ stars out of 4

For those who have seen it: the contradictions: never heard about ghosts that physically harm people, moreover hurting a child because he is not helping them....... How can Dr. Malcolm not realize in more than a year that the others don't see him, has he never went shopping or to a cafe or whatever, how is it possible that he lives in the same house with his wife and thinks that she can see him while she never did? This is absolutely unbelievable. Remember the other ghost films, I think there was one with Steve Martin for example, in which the main character dies, becomes a ghost among living people but needs something like five minutes to realize that others don't see him. There are many other examples in the film history apart from this. If the dead girl Kyra filmed the woman that was poisoning her and had kept the registration, why did she wait until after death to inform her father about it? Has Cole's mother never noticed that her son's photos had something unusual in them before?

In a territory of dreams and nightmares a child psychiatrist and one of his child patients share with us their secret......... Be prepared for more than a couple of high-heart rated moments.......the suspense is created in such a way that you don't have time to realize that the next second something will happen to make you bounce in your armchair. This movie points at our innermost fears stemming from childhood: the fear of the dead. Haley Joel Osment acts wonderfully and is the center of our attention evoking our maternal instinct, even if some of us are not women. Memorable the sanctuary he built to seek for protection against the spirits, his visits to the cathedral and his invocation in latin : De Profundis clamo ad te, domine. His performance is not inferior than that of fully-recognized adult actors.

Bruce Willis' performance is certainly worthy of appreciation as well as the actress who plays Cole's mother - Toni Collette. Full credit to M. Night Shalaman as director, less as script writer for the contradictions of the story which sometimes forces a spectacular effect.
