Plot Summary, Synopsis, Review: IMDb - - - - - - - - - - «Nostradamus 2012 is an interesting documentary that arrives on DVD courtesy of The History Channel. Its focus is on predictions made by the world's most infamous prophet as they relate to the fast approaching year of 2012 - the year his writings seem to indicate in which it'll all hit the fan. French born Michael de Nostredame lived from 1503 to 1566 but during his short lifespan wrote numerous collections of prophecies. An apothecary and seer, his predications have an uncanny accuracy which lends a rather chilling credence to the whole 'it's gonna end in 2012' prediction. But how much of what his man predicted really came true, and how much of it has been made to look true by misinterpretation, coincidence and circumstance is really anyone's guess. The film begins with a quick rundown of who Nostradamus is and how many of his predictions have supposedly come true before discussing some recently unearthed writings and illustrations that seem to indicate 2012 as the year in question. Interviews with scholarly types and experts in the fields of prophecy and 'seeing' are spliced in alongside clips of the worst that the world has seen - famine, war, natural disasters, political unrest - you name it, it's here...».
