"Voyager" has the look and feel of a foreign film, yet its dialogue is in English (chiefly because of Sam Shepard's lead role). All the more to make it accessible to viewers of very though-provoking cinema. It starts out as a look at the 1950s man-of-science, played by Shepard. An engineer of dams on a UNESCO project, he quickly steps into a series of coincidences that circle tighter and tighter into his past. Along the way he meets a beautiful, innocent young girl (Julie Delpy) and a love story develops, neatly but deftly, aboard a steamer to France and a car trip through Europe to Greece. The film's themes are coincidence and the final reckoning of life's events, be they random or chosen. The sometimes dizzying effects of what we call "destiny" ring out loudly in "Voyager", perhaps too harshly at times, but with skillful scene cutting and casting, it manages to offer a sobering ending without being maudlin. As with most non-blockbuster films, the score is understated yet touching. Delpy is just right for her role as Sabeth, the fresh girl away on adventures, yet adds a touch of melancholy that some of today's Hollywood actresses lack. I wish she'd have skipped things like "American Werewolf in Paris". And Shepard plays Walter Faber with expert detachment. He's the older man, devoted to all things proven by technology, whose world comes apart as he tries to find love with Sabeth.
