Initially, I thought this resembled a pitch for “About Time,” an interesting, if slight film from 2013. That film was leisurely to the point of lethargy. In addition, it tried, over hard, I thought, to fiddle the heartstrings.
As this edit progressed, however, I realized the story and themes had been chiseled to essentials.
For lack of a better phrase, similar to a prose poem.
Better than most, the character grasps the reward of Life is not replaying “moments” over and over, but embracing the joie de vivre.
An excellent edit with a sly, positive subtext.
Great edit of a really enjoyable film. Distilling it down to the father/son relationship works perfectly. I'm a huge sucker for father/son relationship films so this is right in my wheelhouse. The cuts were invisible and the music great. I don't remember if that song played at the end was in the film or not but either way, it worked for me. This is a really fun way to view it. It's hard for me to say whether or not the emotional punch works on its own since the short evoked a lot of the emotions from when I saw the full movie. I suspect it works on its own, though. Great job.
Taken from a wonderful movie, this was a nice watch to make me remember it. Unfortunately towards the end of the short for me it was not able to stand on its own feet and was mostly remembering the intense ride I had with the original. I am not sure, what caused it, but I assume it was too close to the original movie. The editing was very well done, video- and audiowise. NJVC obviously knows what he is doing and chose a very sentimental theme for his time travel short, which he treated with respect and deep care. Thanks for making me remember "About Time".
As usual I added one point to narrative and enjoyment to adapt to the spirit of FE ratings.
The ending about Tim's theories of time travelling and not doing it felt to me a bit rushed, because all the experiences he made to get there, were not in the fanedit.
