Movie Info

An ordinary guy takes an extraordinary step through time in this science fiction thriller. Hector (Karra Elejalde) is spending a few days in the countryside with his girlfriend, Clara (Candela Fernández), when he sees something that catches his attention while playing with his binoculars. Looking at a nearby house near a wooded area, Hector spies a beautiful woman taking her clothes off, and decides to take a stroll and give her a closer look. However, when he arrives at the house several minutes later, the woman is lying in the grass and appears to either be dead or passed out. As Hector examines her, he's attacked by a strange man and flees on foot. Hector seeks refuge in a building that turns out to be a research facility owned by a mysterious scientist (Nacho Vigalondo), who gives him a place to hide inside a futuristic closet. However, Hector realizes it was actually a time-travel machine when he emerges a few minutes later and looks out the window to see himself standing over the unconscious woman in the distance. Los Cronocrimenes (aka Timecrimes) was the first feature film from writer and director Nacho Vigalondo, who also appears as the scientist.

  • Hector's insane time-travel journey is an excellent example of high-concept sci-fi.

    March 1, 2011 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Watching "Timecrimes" is like stumbling in a pitch-black haunted house. Hitting walls where paths should be is fun, and time-travel tropes of choice versus fate are inventively goosed. Even with five minutes left, it could conclude in any number of ways.

Audience Reviews for Los Cronocrímenes (Timecrimes)

    Timecrimes is a delightfully odd film. The time loops have such accidental, spontaneous, and mysterious qualities that keep one wondering. This is a definite must see for lovers of the time travel sub-genre of sci-fi.

    Los Cronocrímenes is a marvellous gem about time-travel, it is filled with little surprises. An hour has never been so long.

    Silly Spanish time-travel movie that is too predictable for it's own good.
