Forced Movies 2017 #8 – TimeCrimes (2007)


“Time flies here.” – Clara

Number of Times Seen – 1 (8 May 2017)

Brief Synopsis – A man discovers a time machine and travels back in time one hour causing much chaos in his life.

My Take on it – As a fan of time travel films in general, I have been meaning to wtach this film for quite some time,.

The fact that I am not a fan of foreign language films has kept me from watching it for some time now yet jay found a way to finally get me to watch it.

What I enjoyed the most about this film is the simplicity of it all.

It takes a complex and deep theme and simplifies it by limited the time frame and by explaining the concept in easy to understand terms for the audience for both the ones familiar and unfamiliar with the concept and rules of time travel.

They are able to explore the deep themes so easily here yet keep things interesting by adhering to some simple aspects of the story.

They do a great job helping us differentiate between the different time frames and characters appearing in them and by the end we are completely aware of everything that has happened and of course in what order.

This is the kind of film the deserves multiple rewatches in order to fully understand everything they are trying to convey to us.

We’ll see how long it takes until I get around to seeing it again.

Bottom Line – Such a fun time travel film that is done so simply yet explores such deep themes. Liked the way they easily explained the rules of time travel here and keep things simply framed in order for us to understand what is going on at all times. The short time frame of the whole story makes things even more interesting to watch because you really never know what will ultimately happen to the characters. Recommended!

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – Tom Cruise was at one point attached to do an American remake of the film.  (From IMDB)

Rating – Globe Worthy
