Trivia

The following comment about the summary provided by Shawn Wilson has been made by an "anonymous" user: "It did not create infinite copies of him. What it did is bounce him all around the earth in time and space (different places) but there was only one of him. (suggest the contributor actually watch it) " [By: Anonymous].

((Am unable to tell if this comment is correct, or of any value; but it had to be removed from its original location and so the Trivia section will have to serve as "storage" for the time being until someone else decides what to do with it.)) See more »

A really great quiet little film
29 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this film one time and one time only, in a Sci-Fi Lit class in my senior year of high school in 1980. This made a big impression on me to this day. There were moments of joyful silliness (Walter Gesundheit is actually a double pun, if you are studying German, which I also was taking that year), and scenes of incredibly pure beauty. I found large parts of this movie promoted a philosophy of hope, which was very important to a (then) suicidal teenager. This film kept me out of the knife-room for MONTHS.

I don't know where the teacher obtained the print, and if I could get a copy these days, I would without hesitation, even if I had to pay a lot. Quick, someone tell Mr. Vonnegut so it will be released.
