I have not yet seen this movie, but would like to add that, regarding how a previous review comments on this being 'an old story'... Indeed this is an old story! It was one of H G Wells earliest fantasy novels,in fact his second. First published in 1895, the same year as his first novel, "The Time Machine." Quite a few years before Spielberg or Truffaut! Compared to the rest of his canon, it is a slight, but enjoyable novel, containing some delicious observations on the follies and problems of society, a theme he would continue to write about, with varying degrees of hope and despair, up until his very last published works in 1945. Perhaps this offers some more perspective on the film. I will seek it out and find out for myself!
