Plays on your mind...
4 July 2002 | by See all my reviews

An earlier version of Ground Hog Day (which didn't copy it merely played with the plot a little) this is like a mind trapper. Just watching it made me feel tense. Plotline - A man is trapped in the same 59 minutes over and over again. (Something to do with time bombs and suchlike) The man tries to go about finding out why he's stuck in this situation and at the end when he does find out how and why he wishes he didn't know. A bit like watching a Woody Allen film.

It sounds strange but the scene/s of the guy sitting on the park bench clutching his sandwich makes quite an impact on you.

It's a very good short film and well acted. I'm just glad this sort of thing isn't really possible.....or is it...

An earlier version of Ground Hog Day..........
