Fuller's imagination of a 17c venetian glass says Grant when Kelly opens the present - Tim and Mary do not age although years pass - only male ones can time travel - greetings from the patriarchy. Are girs to0 stupid, or less worthy? Ok this might not be a plothole as it is an "explained" rule in the film, but a clear plot hole is: Kitkat suddenly can time travel when holding her brothers hands in a dark closet, sure. - the time travels lead to very linear changes (Tim changes an incident and not much else changes) BUT Tim's children are totally different when travelling before they were born? - Tim's father explains: you cannot travel into the future. But they do not just travel into the past (and then relive it in a new way), they also travel 'back' from the past into an unknown future - maybe having other children (Tim), or boyfriends (Kitkat). How can they return to the same closet/dark spot, when they might not even be in this location at that time in the new reality. Time travelling does not lead to Groundhog-day-lops, so does new-try-Tim just jump into closets for no reasons, so that his 'soul' or conscience can return from the past? How can they know more about their undone reality or feel more with the undone reality than with the new one, that now actually happend, while the first one never happened as it was undone? Tim's new child: total stranger, Tim's unborn child: 'his' child. It's not even understandible how they activate the return travel - it happens just like that? HIs father explains how to leave off to the past, and Tim just does it. He does not even ask: how to return. A movie does not need to explain everything, but: This returning to the future present remains a huge plot hole as it is a too important element not to be explained. She tries to stay on top whatever happens. No police - they would make her a victim. She even shocks the rapist by telling him she "wants" it. What seems "nasty" is that she speaks the truth, which hurts. And she definitely does not try to be a politically correct person. The film is a lot about people doing awful things because of their illusions. And they invent their illusions because of the awul reality. Michèle is trying to break through this endless vicious circle, and I think she manages at the end. Michéle got from her father a certain certain cruel pleasure, which she found a way to outlive with her sadistic neighbour. His son killed this sadistic pleasure for her, which meant relief for her and a way of realising that she can take initiative in healing social problems of her closest beyond just uncovering what is wrong with their relationships. She didn't want to involve the police, this would only bring the press to warm up the story of a 10 year old girl as a assistant of a mass killer. She rather wants to be strong and independent and able to protect herself. I too had the impression that Michèle was the one seeing through and always speaking the truth, maybe the only one in the movie. And that makes her appear incredible cruel and cold. She sees through the character of his son's girlfriend, she sees that it is not his son's baby and she says so in his son's face, whenever he seems most happy with his illusions. She knows that the police can't bring her justice after being raped, she wouldn't hide her experience either, she tells her friends at a fine dinner without even showing emotions. She sees through her mother's young "lover", who only is attracted to her because of the excitement of sleeping with the wife of a mass killer - and so she openly speaks against their alliance. Michelle has experinced the worst of the people closest to her that made her lose all faith in emotional affection, so whenever possible she breaks all the walls and barriers people build to protect their hopes, dreams and illusions, which cause their twisted reality and helps them to exist in it. There is she (Michèle) and opposite her street, there is another woman (Rebecca). In-between there is a man with sadistic tendencies, both are attracted to. He changes sides - the nice guy and husbands on the one side, the sadistic anonymous rapist on the other. The only thing Michèle has is knowing and speaking the truth. The only thing her christian neighbour has is faith - this is how they manage to carry on, this is how they finally find peace (even with her parents in Michelle's case). There was one great moment in the movie, I really had to laugh out loud: it was the look Hector got from the gangster boss in „Africa“, when imprisoned Hector tells him, he just wants to find out how to be happy. It was this genuin „are you serious“ look I saw so often when a white volunteer girl was „shopping“ with a local on an African market - this problem how can she spend her money and her enjoying shopping as full day fun activity. OR when a white European is „stressed“ or struggles hard with planning ahead and making schedules. You get this exact look - „are you serious“/„you must be kidding“/„wow - straaaange person with problems“. Its the look that makes you feel like an alien coming from a different planet. People like Hector should learn: for most people on this planet its already a challenge just to survive. I did not have the impression he was aware of that at any moment from beginning to the the end. Going first class on a plane - check, tourist visit at a monastery - check, meeting first girlfriend again - check, being imprisoned by an African gangster boss - check. My impression was Hector - and this movie - lacked to understand what human dignity means. Without it you can never be happy. "Africa does have violent, corrupt people, as well as happy well adjusted people who like people who are kind to them." Wait - every continent has these! Simon was acting nice, and actually quite American (which are human to be fair). He went to "China", "Africa", and "LA" :D :D See this about "the country of Africa": [url][/url] ... you need to watch the 1947 Walter Mitty and forget about the remake View all replies >
