Trivia

The storyline has a lot in common with the story "By His Bootstraps" written bij Robert A. Heinlein. The paradox of a person from the future telling something to his earlier self is called an ontological or 'Bootstrap' paradox, after the story from Heinlein. See more »

Goofs

Contrary to the comment before, "Creep", sung by Wagner Moura, does not represent an anachronism. The song does not play at the party itself. Instead, it was used in two scenes to match the feelings that Zero was experienced at the time. Any song composed until then (2011) could have been included in the soundtrack, as long as it did not play at the party. See more »

Excellent film!
30 September 2016 | by gordon-3737See all my reviews

The film "The Man from the Future" (or "O Homem do Futuro" in original) has made very vivid and bright impression on me. I am proudly giving this film rare 10 points of 10 ! The reasons are described below.

First of all, the film is about love. About loud, bright and sometimes even furious love. The film does not show snot, it does not show vulgarity or nudity, no violence. The film shows just real emotions.

Secondly and thirdly, the plot, the scenario is very great and here you will see not only the complicated and tricky story line, but also realistic effects of time travel. Just like in the classic "Back to The Future" trilogy, where characters disappear in future when their past has been changed. I would say that this film is a good example of classic "Science Fiction" genre.

The play of the actors is very good and realistic.

The soundtrack is great.

The film has a happy end, leaving only the positive associations in the memory in the head. It is very important for qualitative films.

If you like time travel and bright emotions, then this film is for you.

The only strange moment is the "popularity" of the film in the modern world. I wonder, why it has not yet been officially released in many countries. I hope, this mistake will be corrected in the future.
