Movie Info

Maria Ripoll made her feature directorial debut with this witty Spanish-British romantic comedy, set in London, where actor Victor (Scottish actor Douglas Henshall) is drunk and upset over former girlfriend Sylvia (Leana Headley) and her upcoming marriage in 48 hours to Dave (Mark Strong). In the rain, the wet and drunk Victor meets two Spanish sanitary workers, Don Miguel (Eusebio Lazaro) and Rafael (Gustavo Salmeron), and their Spanish poetry quotes cue special effects and time travel.

Without a rooting interest in our so-called 'hero,' one admires the invention of the film without necessarily enjoying it.

[A] lively, if diverse, directing debut.

Film Journal International

Equal doses of fairy tale with quixotic overtones, romantic treacle, and subtle sci-fi, this small British-Spanish import looks (marginally) better on paper than on screen.

Audience Reviews for Twice Upon a Yesterday

Though the start of the movie was a little slow, by the end I was invested in the characters. I really liked the changing twists of fate...the plot starts like so many others but has a wonderful twist of its own that I had not yet seen done. Wonderful! Great acting, great filming and editing, and great locations. I really liked it...especially nice ending. Chick flick? Probably...
