Richard Curtis is almost 60 years old, but his movies have never been better. He is the one hiding behind some of the greatest British romantic scenarios of these past ten years: Four Weddings and a Funeral, Notting Hill, Bridget Jones' Diary, Love Actually and others. He knows how to show love on the big screen and also has this English sense of humour we don't find that often.
About Time may be the last movie he realizes, Curtis announced he wasn't sure yet to work on antoher one after that.
In his movies, the cast is always perfect, actors are very talented and the characters they play are often touching, funny and sometimes annoying - just because they remind us of ourselves...
The story is centered on Tim (Domhnall Geelson) and Mary (Rachel McAdams), two young beautiful people who meet, fall in love and get married. This could be the end of the story, but there's something unusual about this perfect couple: Tim has a supernatural power and can travel back in time. Despite this super-power, he doesn't always manage to help his loved ones and has to make choices, to face death, family issues and other things he would have loved being able to erase.
The story is really smart and nice, it is clearly not one of these so-called "romantic comedies" which all seem to have the same jokes and same scripts.
About Time is really original and emotional, I could not help but crying - and I bet you'd do the same. MUST-SEEN!
