Synopsis: Recounts the life and loves of the physician, astrologer, and famed prognosticator; his encounters with medieval science and the Inquisition; and his early struggles with his visions of the future. The film is set in France in the 16th century during one of the periodic plague outbreaks (as opposed to the Black Death [mid-14th-century Europe] or the Black Plague [mid-17th-century London]). The film depicts Nostradamus's rise in influence, because of both his success in treating plague and his predictions, culminating in his appointment as court physician to Charles IX of France.

Quick, a priest.

There is no need for a priest.

Are you the Devil?

The nodes are not black.

That is healthy blood

fighting the infection.

You have got a fever.

That is good.

Put that under your tongue

until it dissolves.

What is it?

You want to poison me?

lt is only herbs

and dried rose petals.

You've got hundreds of roses

in your mouth.

Think of that.

What are you doing?

What does that help?

Stop that nonsense!

You should be locked up...

l do what l can.

Their fate, however,

lies in God's hands.

So it is God's fault they die.

Everyone must leave here!

Whoever remains will die!

l can't guarantee

that l can save you all.

Many of you could live!

But only if you leave here!

Do not go, he is the Devil!

Get out of the way!

And astrology. Write it down.

And the esoteric doctrines?



Black magic.


Worship of the Devil.

You are ill, monsieur.

Get the doctor, quick!

He will bleed you,

which will kill you.
