Storyline

In this follow up to the Time Machine, Filby is still the caretaker of his friend George's house ten years following George's trip to the future. Filby is then surprised to see his old friend return to his home to retrieve some books to help in his quest to rebuild humanity. During the stay, Filby implores his good friend to stay and resume his life there. However, George refuses and tells James that he has chosen to remain in the future. Also, it is a sad return for George due to the fact that at the time he returns it is just prior to the beginning of World War I and he does all he can to try to not reveal the tragic future of his good friend.

A Sentimental Journey
8 March 2003 | by (Los Angeles, California) – See all my reviews

This was an excellent documentary on the making of the film, but the part I especially loved was the scene depicting the reunion of George and David. Upon George's return, he meets up with his old friend David Filby and catches him up on what his activities are in the future. As the meeting is taking place you can see the sadness as George must hold back what he knows about the fate of his old friend. This adds something to the film and also puts a bit of closure on the story. This is a fantastic epilogue to a great film.
