Synopsis

Release Date:

December 12,2008

Oscar-nominated short film writer/director Nacho Vigalondo (7:35 IN THE MORNING) makes his feature debut with a tense, unstoppable vision of science and natural law gone awry. Hector (Karra Elejalde) is relaxing on a lawn chair outside of his new country home, surveying the nearby hillside through a pair of binoculars, when he catches sight of what appears to be a nude woman amidst the trees. Hiking up to investigate, he is attacked by a sinister figure whose head is wrapped in a grotesque, pink bandage. Fleeing in terror, he takes refuge in a laboratory atop the hill, where a lone attendant (director Nacho Vigalondo) ushers him in to a peculiar scientific contraption. He emerges what seems to be moments later, only to find that he has traveled back hours in time, setting in motion a brain-twisting, horrifying chain of events when he inadvertently runs into himself. Drawing from the best traditions of classic science fiction and crime fiction, TIMECRIMES plays games with the genre and the audience, layering a Russian-doll like shell of identities on the protagonist as becomes increasingly complicit in the complicated mess that he's trying to fix.
