A film to remember...
17 September 2005 | by (France) – See all my reviews

I saw this film in a movie festival in Brittany, France. Somebody here said it was for children, but I'm 27, I saw it with my mother and my boyfriend when it came out, and the three of us just loved it. The story of a young boy accidentally traveling into the past, and then going back there on purpose and saving a little girl's life is absolutely brilliant, and the actors are all perfect : Charlotte Wakefield and Matthew Beard show an outstanding maturity, and Tom Wilkinson, Julie Cox and Anna Massey are also incredibly moving. After seeing this film we were all in tears, and I was thrilled tonight when it got on TV at long last... I just found out it had come out on DVD in America, so I will be able to get it and recommend it to everyone I know.
