Shadows (Senki)

Rated NR 129 min. 2009

If we were to choose one man who's got everything going for him, then Lazar Perkov would be an excellent choice. He's young, good-looking, has a beautiful wife, lovely little boy, great house and a good job as a hospital physician. In fact, everyone calls him "Lucky." Nothing's missing--except maybe Lucky himself, who's always trying to live up to the expectations of others. Like his bored wife and roguish colleagues. And, above all, his famous physician mother, a driven woman who rose from obscurity to renown with an iron will that crushed all resistance, whether from the living or the dead. When Lucky is involved in a disastrous car crash and mysteriously saved from a sure death, his life begins to change. He meets strange people: an old man with a baby, an ancient lady speaking a forgotten dialect, a beautiful young woman with a sad secret. Their only message is: "Return what's not yours. Have respect." He gradually becomes aware that it is a message from the afterlife, from tormented souls who seem to die over and over again. But why have they chosen him? To answer this question, Lucky must finally grow up and become the man he wants to be.
