| Cute Magic Realism Romance
The British "Twice Upon A Yesterday (The Man with Rain in His Shoes)" was a cute date movie (both the guy and the girl change ).

Sure it's unoriginal, a cross between "Groundhog Day," "Sliding Doors," and "Next Stop Wonderland" with magic realism, but I'm a sucker for that and this is more thoughtful about the relationships.

Other than a cameo by Elizabeth McGovern, the Brit and Spanish actors are all unknown, not even from Brit TV, and not all by any means gorgeous.

Nice world music soundtrack, reflecting the new British immigrant diversity. And nice musical touch that the couple almost stays together because he gets her tickets to a Radiohead concert.

(originally written 6/5/1999)
