LOS CRONOCRÍMENES 'TIMECRIMES' (2007) - 3:30PM
SPEAKER - DR NIKK EFFINGHAM - 5:30PM
Welcome to Sci-Fi Sundays at Deptford Cinema. Join us for an afternoon movie on the last Sunday of the month. With quarterly themes, our 2018/2019 programme delves into wibbly wobbly timey wimey stuff, Earthly welcomes, post-Earths, new flesh and everything in between when it comes to our favourite Science Fiction cinema.
Alongside each screening we’ve organised a little something extra; quizzes, short-films, panel discussions and much more.
Our first theme is TIME, a staple of science fiction that had us struggling to narrow down a huge list of great time travel films.
dir. Nacho Vigalondo
LOS CRONOCRÍMENES 'TIMECRIMES'
Héctor and his wife Clara are renovating a country home. Whilst lounging in the garden and scanning the countryside with his binoculars, Héctor spies some interesting things going on in the woods; things he decides to investigate further…
It’s hard to give much more of a synopsis for Timecrimes without spoiling the fantastic snowballing story that follows, hopefully you’ll trust us when we say it’s great! Small details and props that at first seem like set dressing eventually become integral as Héctor’s day only gets worse whilst the plot straddles horror, tragedy and comedy and sometimes all three at once when viewed from alternative angles.
Shot on a budget of 2.6 million and with a total cast of only four (including director Nacho Vigalondo), Timecrimes is a ‘small film’, but it’s definitely greater than the sum of its parts. The plot quickly ramps up and unravels so make sure you keep your wits about you as you follow Héctor down the rabbit hole…
