Storyline

James is feeling rather proud of his little technological marvel that allows him to travel back in time precisely one minute. It's the perfect tool for trying to seduce the beautiful Regina who is sitting on a park bench, enjoying the sun. If he makes a mistake or receives a rejection, he just hits the little red button and tries again. Unfortunately for James, he learns that his machine hasn't been working the way he thought, and he must now face the dark reality of his actions. Written by Devon Avery

Awesome short video.
13 January 2016 | by knighterrauntSee all my reviews

I like the simple humor of the video, perhaps it was not the hardest movie to make, but the authors had a good idea and the shooting is of really high quality, I wish the AAA titles were so simple and elegant. The length of the movie is also well chose - I believe it would get boring if it were longer. The soundtrack is the icing on the cake it fits this video perfectly. Surely worth watching if you are a simple man like me, especially as it takes only one short bus ride, or short goodnight. To IMDb: How the hell am I supposed to write a 10 line review of a movie which has 5 minutes without putting spoilers? I wrote everything I liked about the movie and what to expect from it, calm you length limits IMDb.
