SYNOPSIS

‘Before he thrilled and bewildered cinema-goers with the ingeniously batty Anne Hathaway and Jason Sudeikis vehicle Colossal, Spanish director Nacho Vigalondo was arguably best known for his ingeniously batty time-travel experiment now widely considered one of the best time-travel films of, well, all time(s).

Concerning itself with the temporal tribulations of hapless everyman Héctor (and Héctor, and Héctor) as he grapples with the crimes he commits as he attempts to prevent himself from committing said crimes, the film was made with virtually no budget, and consequently no special effects, instead relying entirely on Vigalondo's knotty, cerebrum-frying script and the deadpan ability of Karra Elejalde as the triplicate protagonist to pull it off. Winning the Best Picture and Silver Audience awards at the 2007 Fantastic Fest, Timecrimes has proved itself through time, and is well worth your time!’ Melbourne International Film Festival
