Something will need to wake you during this rambling and dull supernatural romance. A ghost story entirely lacking in tension, writer-director Michael Petroni's Voices follows the life of a physician, as both a cheerful youngster (Lindley Joyner) then as a stifled middle-aged man (Guy Pearce). Back and forth the narrative arcs go, until the youthful tragedy we know is coming is finally revealed.
Helena Bonham Carter plays an amnesiac whom Pearce rescues from suicide. Can there be any doubt about her involvement in the great secret that he is repressing? Roger Lanser's attractive cinematography (the picture is set in Australia) helps alleviate the pain, but this is one film that should never have been awakened.
