About Time (Richard Curtis – 2013) A

I loved this film, the characters, the style, the dialogue, every actor,..really everything about it. It’s a movie that has time travel but has very little interest in that aspect or its mechanics. Instead we get a sweet story that tackles love and human connection wrapped with the candy of “time travel”. What is most important to our lives? If we can go back in time and live any day we like, would we really choose to go and see the French revolution or the toppling of the Berlin wall? Or maybe just go back and be there again when our 5-year old comes back from his first day of school? Or maybe to that nice walk on the beach with a loved one? Like his Love Actually, Richard Curtis manages to make a film that I can ignore every flaw or plot hole it  might have and just watch it over and over.
