It’s an ‘alternate future’ time warp tale of the kind that seldom works … but this is an exception. Andrew Legge’s modest found-footage movie serves up a rich dose of sci-fi ideas. What would you do if you could listen in on radio and TV signals from the future? ┬áIn 1940, two women use their ‘impossible’ information to thwart Germany’s bombing of England, but inadvertently set into motion unforseen time-twist problems. The way the story is told may not appeal, but it does hang together as an unusually imaginative, refreshingly rewarding time-paradox tale. Starring Emma Appleton and Stefanie Martini. On Blu-ray from Severin Films.
