Trivia

The character Elizabeth Barrett's name may have been based on the romance poet of the 18th century Elizabeth Barrett Browning. See more »

Goofs

The money Pax brings with him from the future is real cash (although from 2012), so this cash would not be flagged by any bank as counterfeit. Also the bills would not get to a Secret Service agent within hours of being spent, more like days. See more »

464th Review: For TV this is excellent and worth your time
14 November 2011 | by inteleartsSee all my reviews

This is a very appealing and nicely judged movie with a likable story, likable characters, and likable actors. It has something of that innocence that Mork and Mindy had (without too much of the zany) and all in all it is deeply romantic and charming. It reminded this reviewer of a one-off production from the BBC from Mike Leigh in 1980 called The Flipside of Dominick Hide, that even now gets 8.2 on IMDb. That too is not high production film, but rather simple and romantic, combined with strong story-telling. This won't be to everyone's taste as it emphasizes innocence but for this reviewer it has some of that elusive magic that no about of production or money can bottle.

An anthropologist from the 32nd century travels backs a thousand years to seek out the author of a romantic novel that he discovers. As love is a word unknown to his society he is intrigued. He arrives in New Orleans and the fun begins. What follows is a nice tale of discovery and romance. Of course, we get the fun of a future traveller perplexed by our world etc;

All in all this goes to show that conviction, a good plot, and good acting doesn't need a huge budget or masses of effect: a simple tale, simply told, and it is both heart-warming and charming.
