Abstract:

"Elisabeth and Simon have been together as a couple for only a few months when Simon dies. To everyone's surprise he revives after a few minutes and appears to be quite healthy again. The couple's relationship appears to become more intense, but Simon is unable to come to terms with his near-death experience, feeling an irresistible desire to withdraw from life. Their friends Judith and Jérôme, a married couple of Protestant pastors, try to rationalise how Simon and Elisabeth must feel, offering guidance and consolation through theological and philosophical discussions, but the couple are beyond the reach of human understanding or explanation, and the pervasive and persuasive music of 'the other, ' of a love beyond death, exerts an irresistible attraction."--Www.dvdtimes.co.uk.
