Alec Fenton, an Americanized-European commodities trader is living happily in Athens with Marjorie, his wife, an American of Greek origin who works at the American Embassy. Alec believes in signs and premonitions, which leads him to a torrid affair with Katherine, his beautiful co-worker. His obsessive pursuit of portents results in the slow, torturous unraveling of his seemingly orderly world.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Rampling, to her credit, helps hold the nuthouse together."
‑ Michael Atkinson, Village Voice
"For all its ambition and richness of style, Signs & Wonders never shows us what's inside Alec."
‑ Edward Guthmann, San Francisco Chronicle
"Abtruse, delicately constructed and thoughtful... an arty Euro-flick with an almost entirely emotional mystery and pay-off."
‑ Brent Simon, Entertainment Today
"There's a potentially good film struggling to get out of an overly self-conscious director's grip here."
‑ David Noh, Film Journal International
"A textbook example of a pretentious art film."
‑ Rob Blackwelder, SPLICEDWire
"Until it devolves into what seems like a quasi-surreal Fatal Attraction ... offers a stark, spooky portrait of family fracture and loss."
‑ Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer
"Danger: when your suspense film ends and you don't care who really did "it", whatever "it" is, you might want to rethink the plot."
‑ Jason Gorber, Film Scouts
"Feels like a film that could have been shot by Nicolas Roeg."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Signs takes us into Alec's confused head, and, although it can be disturbing there, it's never dull."
‑ Chris Hewitt (St. Paul), St. Paul Pioneer Press
"You're beginning to understand why Unger seems to be in such a daze: she's read the script."
‑ Steven Mazey, Ottawa Citizen
"Has extraordinary depth and insight about the limitations and follies of human beings."
‑ Loren King, Boston Globe
"Underrated ..."
‑ Philip Martin, Arkansas Democrat-Gazette
"While it loses its balance deliberating between a political message about American values, a mystery of chance and a steamy love triangle, Signs & Wonders makes for compulsive viewing."
‑ Jeremiah Kipp, Flipside Movie Emporium
"I hate to drag out that word again, but it's seriously needed here: pretentious."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, San Francisco Examiner
"If you're looking for a unique, stimulating time at the movies, sign up here."
