GREAT remake of "TIM X"
24 October 2005 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

"Mary and Tim" is a really great, warm and touching film which I have enjoyed seeing a few times now. I think that both Candice and Thomas, who plays the two main characters, are superb in these roles. It's great to see this version and also the changes they have made from the original version "Tim X" with Mel Gibson and Piper Laurie from 1979. I LOVED the original film and I thought both Mel Gibson and the extraordinary Piper Laurie should have won academy awards for their performances. The bad thing about the original is that, although the actors are brilliant, the film itself are a bit cheap in terms of how it's made. Must have been a low-budget Australian adventure. However, in this 1996 re-make TV version, it's very good quality for a TV film.

I think that the actor who plays Tim deserves to be recognized more for his acting. I think he was very good in this film, and played a role you very rarely see a young actor playing. Candice Bergen is always great. I love the idea of a young guy and an older woman, and it's all done in great taste and touches upon the subject that you should NEVER judge anyone because of how they feel emotionally for another person, or judge anyone who might be a little "slow", like Tim is.
