Because horror films need new blood after so many remakes and slight variations of a same theme, you canít afford to miss Nomads. It isnít an excellent film but it possesses many never-before-seen elements.
First of all, we are explained what happened to Jean-Charles, interpreted by Pierce Brosnan, to make him sink into madness and, eventually, succumb to folly. We know how his story ends but that doesnít mean we canít sympathise and fear for his life. This is where Dr Flaxí importance comes in. She is our heroin. Through her eyes, we follow a less than clear explanation of Jean-Charlesí death. However, as the film progresses, the present and past events coincide to a point where we canít distinguish them either. This aspect quickly pushes this drama flick to a psychological level.
The basis of the story isnít very interesting nor is it very logical. No official explanation is brought to us either. What this film has that is missing in others is its manner of exposing two different periods in one single flow of artistic creation.
