THE MEDIUM

 

A feature film by Manu Laskar

With Manu Laskar, Louise Bourgoin, Maud Wyler, Noémie Lvovsky, Alexandre Steiger

Michael Monge is a young Medium, just like his mother who just died. As the sole heir to her gifts, he is encouraged by his sister to continue with her clients and communicate with the dead. But a new client will turn this career plan upside down: Alice, a young charismatic artist seized by the recent death of her companion. Struck by a mutual love at first sight, Michael and Alice will be forced to confront their ghosts to regain possession of their lives
