It's pedro does the twilight zone! That's the only way i can describe it. And that's a good thing. I loved it. I just hope who ever directs it (it looks to be romero) gets a good cast and doesn't really crew around with the script too much. If they go with a man of the same age, then tony'monk' shalhoub is perfect. But i got the feeling that they will have hector younger.

I loved this movie. I also love time travel stuff Adebrown, and I thought there was some true great comedy moments in it too!

My head hurts when I think about time travel.
Thanks for the ride, sir.

Superb intrigue and story layering, and the lead characters personality development was perfect.

Loved the stting too.

A pleasant surprise and much appreciated.

Like films that make me think and pay attention. This film did just that. Very entertaining.

This was very much like dark version of Multiplicity. Be good to get a T shirt saying" I am Hector 1"

Or multiple customised shirts for different days - on day 4 you could be Lupogirl 2 for example :)

Really enjoyed it, thought it had a real Twilight Zone feel to the story as well!

Having plugged this one on the 'what film are you most looking forward to' video I'm glad that it lived up to my expectations!

So good to see a time travel movie that actually made sense - really tightly plotted and had plenty of fun moments too. Also liked the fact that it didn't have to rely on a young pretty cast... unlike the remake (probably).

One of the highlights of FF 2008 and shows exactly why the festival should embrace the diversity of the genre...

Oh yes, as was mentioned during conversations outside after this film, we should start the petition for remake casting here:

Tony Shalhoub for Hector!

Great film and really doesnt need to be remade, it'll only have guns and explosions and be dumbed down.

That was what I said as soon as I came out of the film, not sure if we came to the conclusion independently or if I was talking to you...apologies if I haven't made the connection!

Really enjoyed this one, especially all the humour and the lead was so well-cast.
If you cut off my head, what would I say... Me and my head, or me and my body? What right has my head to call itself me?

I think it may well have been you who came up with it on the way out there scrobble - I am legendarily bad at remembering names and forum monikers! (Me - super fat b*stard with goatee and seemingly infinite supply of one-liner tshirts :) ) And was just too good a suggestion to not include here!

i was quite disappointed with this one. i like spanish genre cinema, so my expectations were high. and it turned out to be only so so. plot wasn't really original and very predictable at times. nice few scenes though, good acting, atmosphere here and there. ok flick, but was hoping for so much more (especially after reading in FF Programe - watch it very closely, as everything is a part of the puzzle - or sth like that).

im not so keen on time travel movies as they can be a bit simple, you just work backwards, anyway i really like this one, nice tone!
