Description Having run away twenty-one years ago, Carlotta (Marion Cotillard) is back out of the blue. Ismael (Mathieu Amalric) has been busy rebuilding a life for himself next to Sylvia (Charlotte Gainsbourg) while working on his next feature film. As Ismael's trials and tribulations unfurl, so do those of the main character of his film: the idle, funny and reckless diplomat Ivan Dédalus (Louis Garrel). The character is a nod to the ghost of another of Desplechin's creations, the brother of Paul Dédalus, three-time hero of "My Sex Life - or How I Got Into an Argument," "A Christmas Tale" and "My Golden Days." A film within a film - and then some, Desplechin layers narrative upon narrative. With ISMAEL'S GHOSTS, Desplechin returns once again to the past, creating film after film as his way of stepping back in time, and proving yet again that his brand of genius lies in his ability to find light in the darkest of places.

Although I am not a big fan of Stephen Dorff, I have to admit that I'm glad that he didn't take on a role that would've been difficult to pull off. In "Fantômes d'Ismael," he plays the part of a young Jewish man whose father has been killed by the Nazis. The man eventually goes through a phase of being completely detached from reality, living in a fantasy world where everything goes according to plan and the men who are supposed to protect him (and their families) are simply tools to be used by a mysterious benefactor. If you are familiar with the novel, this might be familiar territory for you. But if you aren't familiar with the book, I think you'll be able to enjoy this movie for what it is. I think that it was a good move to have Dorff do this role because it gives the movie a different twist to the novel. I really liked the acting. It's hard to explain how good the acting was, but it was definitely something I could identify with. I thought that the supporting cast was quite good as well. The only actor I was a bit concerned with was Anthony LaPaglia, but I think he didn't need to be in this movie. If he were in it, it would've been hard to keep his character from feeling too "old." And he's not a good actor, so I don't really see the need for him to be in this movie. I am sure that he will be in other movies after this one. Overall, this movie is a very good movie. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who is a fan of Stephen Dorff. It's a great movie that will be a great movie for those who aren't familiar with the book, but who are fans of Stephen Dorff. I give "Fantômes d'Ismael" a B+.
