Rampling, to her credit, helps hold the nuthouse together.

Until it devolves into what seems like a quasi-surreal Fatal Attraction ... offers a stark, spooky portrait of family fracture and loss.

Top Critic

Has extraordinary depth and insight about the limitations and follies of human beings.

For all its ambition and richness of style, Signs & Wonders never shows us what's inside Alec.

As a drama about the ravages of mental illness, the movie works.

Signs and Wonders fails because Mr. Nossiter doesn't bother to define the women as characters; he seems as deluded as Alec.

Audience Reviews for Signs & Wonders

Even though it was critically panned, I can't say that I didn't enjoy this film. There is tremendously good interplay between the leads and heavy good drama.

I like it.As a cult art-house it doesn't fail,trifling and playfully iconoclastic.Greece as a tourist/underground combination.We have a Rambling/Skarsgard clash and to be honest,Katalifos' inspiring performance steals the show.Nossiter moves around like a rat amongst cats' dormitories carrying out his passion for film-making too much I think.
