Producer/director/writer Richard Curtis has chosen a rather cliched theme, that of a young man who is able to travel backwards in time (but not forwards), to tell a tale of wit, humour and pathos. Tim Lake (Domnhall Green) is something of a nerd where girls are concerned, but his new-found gift of time-travelling is going to make all the difference to his love-life. Except for his father(the delightful Bill Nighy), nobody else in his rather unconventional family knows about this gift, and a diverse cast of amusing characters, including Tim's foul-mouthed landlord (Tom Hollander), who is the recipient of one of Tim's well-intentioned "interventions", interact with him on his quest for true love - which does not take long to appear, in the person of Mary (Rachel McAdams). Tim's "interventions" sometimes go very wrong, so it is with a certain relief that the viewer can take comfort in the fact that it is all fantasy-fiction. If it sounds rather trite, do not be put off - there is much to commend this film, including a well-chosen and enjoyable music score.
