“What year is this?!” Yep, we’re in that ter­ri­tory, as a sci­en­tist stum­bles upon time travel and goes back to the night his life went wrong.

This Brazil­ian film plays out rather like the ace Time­crimes, but is less as­sured. Af­ter a mostly com­pul­sive first half the char­ac­ters’ un­be­liev­able and un­sym­pa­thetic be­hav­iour rocks the boat, and the plot com­pli­ca­tions nearly sink it. But it’s not bad for a nowhere­n­ear-Hol­ly­wood sci-fi ef­fort.

Ex­tras None. Rus­sell Lewin
