Visual Editing: 10
Invisible and perfectly executed.I couldn't begin to guess which cuts were in the original film and which were the fan edit ones.
Audio Editing: 9
Near perfect (There was this one moment in the final voiceover music mix). Such an emotional story but I nearly lost my sh*t during the music montage. One of my all time favourite songs by Nick Cave so it went straight for the emotional jugular with me.
The story was so, so tight. There was never a moment left unexplained or unexplored despite some scenes/shots lasting a few seconds only. Such a great job.
I'd heard mixed-to-good things about the source but from this edit I'm going to go watch it very soon. It really looks like my type of film (Father/Son stories really chime with me), although I suspect njvc has cherry-picked only the very best moments. Just one brief moment in the edit suggested that the rest of the actual film wouldn't be as nearly good and be chock-full of the usual Curtis upper-middle-class-problems cr*p (When they talked about not being rich, despite clearly being fantasically wealthy already).
njvc, please do a full-length edit of this movie. I just know it would be masterpiece after seeing what you did here.
p.s. It was awesome seeing Domhnall Gleeson of 'Dredd' and 'Star Wars' fame. He's really good and more than held his own against Nighy.
A very emotional time travel this one...
This fanedit really looks like a short movie. Technicaly flawless to me and the narrative flows perfectly.
It's SO touching someone could cry (I did not. But I'm sure someone could. lol)
A zero fault from njvc.
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.
