A magazine decides to do a story on a man advertising for someone to time travel with him. But really, the story is about the relationship between characters - all whom seem very much detached and looking for something deeper. I was surprised by how well the concept works and even if the ending strays too far into Spielbergian wonder - the characters themselves drive the film and they do it well.

The characters and their relationships are what drive this story. You get a real sense of loneliness and longing from them and there are some touching moments. The comedy feels fresh and funny, though I wouldn't call it hilarious. The sci-fi element is a micro part of the film and is left to end the movie with some interesting ambiguity. I did enjoy this movie, but only to a point. I think my expectations were too high, from reading all the glowing reviews. Still very much worth a look.
