Critic Reviews for The Man with Rain in His Shoes (Twice Upon a Yesterday)
Without a rooting interest in our so-called 'hero,' one admires the invention of the film without necessarily enjoying it.
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 The Man with Rain in His Shoes (Twice Upon a Yesterday)
a modern day "sliding doors" meets "serendipity" and "somewhere in time", with a far more fetching cast. a growing up romcom with an excellent ending.
A moderately entertaining little romance with a time travel aspect. Nice to see a film where characters actually learn something and the ending hasn't been telegraphed to us from the beginning, but this film suffers from a lack of dramatic tension. It's sweet and at times pretty charming, but you don't really get the feeling that much is at stake.
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...
