Pretty good, not brilliant by Texan99 September 4, 2010 - 12:32 PM PDT

A man and woman form an unlikely but enduring bond based on encounters over a period of decades. These encounters are complicated by the fact that the man pops around in time, so that she first meets him when she is a child and he is almost middle-aged, but he first meets her when he and she are both in their early 20s, at a time when she has known an older incarnation of him for most of her life so far. I read the book first and liked it very much. The movie did a fine job of adaptation to the screen. (Like the book, the movie wisely declines to worry too much about the exact mechanism of the time travel, concentrating instead on its impact on the romance.) Its true that it might be difficult to follow the fractured time-sequence of the movie without the assistance of having read the book first. It would be a terrible idea, certainly, to try to enjoy the movie in a casual viewing with interruptions or distractions. With all those qualifications, I found it a real treat to watch.
