The theme of a "medium" woman waiting for sign of her dead "medium" twin brother is a potentially original idea. Nevertheless, the writer fails to develop the theme in an interesting way and ends up by adding in the middle of the film a theft and a murder mystery totally irrelevant to the main theme. Therefore the film loses its focus and becomes diluted in uninteresting side events about arts, fashion, jewelry, hotels rooms and travels by train and motorcycle. Assayas is obviously fascinated by Krysten Stewart's beauty, so we are inundated with endless face close ups and shots of nudity. Despite some striking scenes of ghost appearance, the film has a slow pace and is often tedious. Many scene ending are abrupt fade out. An overall disappointing result.
