This gentle flowing film may not appeal to those who have not yet faced the heartfelt emotions that come with choices and life. The growing and learning stages we all venture through never end and the only thing constant is change. This film extracts one such moment and presents it to the viewer not as an answer but as slow journey through the moment love slips away. A thought provoking piece worth the watch.

Wow, such a stunning piece or cinematography deserves more than 5 stars!(I'll have to suggest that lionhead add a 6th) The camerawork was beautiful and helped the excellent plot flow easily. Hat's off to the cast, as although there were only 2 of them thye performed professionally. Overall a great film worthy of 5 stars and 1 more! Excellent work!

Ich habe schon lange keinen Film mehr auf TMO gesehen, der mich so tief berührt hat und dieses "Gänsehaut-pur"-Feeling aufkommen lie�?. Wie Andy schon schrieb: Ein Film wie ein Gedicht. - Es sind vornehmlich diese langsamen, wunderschönen und bis ins Detail durchdachten Kamerafahrten, die mich beeindruckt und fasziniert haben und die diesem Film diese ganz besondere, fast schon wehmütige Atmosphäre verleihen. Dazu David Cresswells gefühlvolle Monologe und die ebenso passende Musik von Scott Buckley.
Fazit: Meowan at his best! Unbedingt anschauen!

A reflective kind of machinima in the style of the meowan classic �??Am Ende der Distanz�?? and the wonderful Frenhofer flick �??Das Gewicht der Sekunde�??. That is what came into my mind as I watched it. It doesn�??t really reach the heights of those two masterpieces. I knew the direction of the ending before I saw it. It was predictable.
But�?�.
The brilliant spoken monologues and the speechlessness of the acting characters in their personal dilemma is the unchallenged strength of this plot. And that makes it to a good one. Scott Buckley did an outstanding job in creating this moving piece of music. It fitted to the slow, reflective style of this movie. The VAs David Cresswell and Crystal Lonnquist were absolutely convincing. The direction was strong. The set dressing, the cut, the camera were absolute convincing. The slow and flowing camera style matches wonderful into the calm and dramatic plot. This movie has atmosphere. And that makes it to an enjoyable piece of machinima.
�??In the Nick of Time�?? is a solid, coherent kind of movie. The different technical layers (cut, camera, setdressing, voices, music or the like) are interacting with each other and leading to an atmospheric experience. That is the reason why this movie convinces me!

Beautiful movie. That I always like about your (the few I have watched) movies is the pacing ... You always seem to push on right button and it just flows like wather. That combned with wonderful music really has the ability to touch my heart, and in that coherence, I really have to commend you. Add great story telling, with a beautiful message and you have another classic movie from your studio.Absolutely stuning meowan.

I'm not sure what the title means, but there's no doubt that this is an excellent film.

Very well played by the lead, I was in no doubt that he was the character portrayed.

The music fit perfectly with the atmospheric goings on.

I thought the ending was heavy-handed initially (I'm talking about what appeared to be an unnecessary action scene), but the VERY ending made up for that completely. It turns out that this film is about massive consequences and not just about relationship breakdown.

Always engaging and thought-provoking and beautifully shot as well, this film is a TMO classic.

Der Film war für mich am Anfang sehr "langatmig", dennoch passte alles perfekt zusammen und ich fand auch die Hauptrollen mit der klassen VO sehr überzeugend.
Leider gab es ihn in englischer Sprache, wobei dies dem Gesamturteil keinen Abbruch gibt.

Now this was one solid piece of work. "Beautifully done" says it all. The words, the directing, the music, I loved it all. I could tell from the beginning the directing was going to be a treat to the eye. I loved how smooth the camera moved. The scene and music at the end was a very nice touch, causing one to be drawn further into the film. Five stars and worth every one.

A compelling narration that glides through each shot which is slowly and delicately shot. Very few TMO movie makers can realise and more importantly utilise the freecam as good as this. The music help gives the movie a dramatic and art house feel. Still it's the movies visual strength with David Cresswells heartfelt and exceptionally well written narration that stand out.
Well deserved of it's hot pick status.

This has got to be the most movie like > Real life TMO movie i have seen.
It was brilliant. Narrating was off the hook.

The ending was probably the most effective scene.

Ich muss ganz ehrlich sagen, dass ich diesen Film einfach nur genial fand.
Besonders der Effekt mit den Kamerafahrten hat mich besonders angetan. Durch diese geschmeidigkeit und langsame Fahrt in Kombination mit der sehr gut ausgewählten Musik, kam das emotionelle besonders gut rüber. Solche Umsätze erlebt man wirklich selten. Brillante Leistung und viel Erfolg noch mit deinen anderen Filmen!

Sorry for my bad English, I am French.

Realization 5/5: very good. A good work, all the scenes are enchainent with wonder. Beautiful work on the free cam plans. I liked the scene of the beginning much, when the guy drives car, because this poses the environment of your movie.
Sound 4/5: good doublings, not of big problems. The musics are well, but not extraordinary. They gives, T a with dimensions tragedy, sad with film but, some break the rytme

I don't rate the scenario, because I am not on to have very understood.

This gentle flowing film may not appeal to those who have not yet faced the heartfelt emotions that come with choices and life. The growing and learning stages we all venture through never end and the only thing constant is change. This film extracts one such moment and presents it to the viewer not as an answer but as slow journey through the moment love slips away. A thought provoking piece worth the watch.

First of all: beautifully written, and, to my ear, an absolutely spellbinding narrating performance - bravo.
I thought that sometimes you could have dropped the volume of the music and FX, I'm sure at one point the VO was amplified to be heard. However, that's a minor quibble. All the others have commented on the visual aspects much more eloquently than I could, so I can only agree. Nice film.

Wow, just amazing! Frankly, it's not really my type of movie, I prefer comedie, action or sci-fi, but this one is just perfect. The music is great, the editing is just fantastic and the V.O. are just sublime, the best V.O. I ever heard. Normally I don't like giving 5 Stars but since I can't give 4.5 and 4 is definetly not enough I'll have to give it 5 Stars!!!

Very good film, very emotional and with great VOs and appropriate music. The end was quite depressing however, but that's merely an opinion and should not be rated badly because of it. Also, I felt the nudity was a bit over the top, especially without a warning, but yet again this is not something to rate badly upon. Overall this was a great piece of work. Bravo!

Hmmm...
Von den bildern und Musik her war der Film sehr gut, allerdings fand ich die einleitende Autofahrt irgendwie etwas zu... lang, weniger ereignislos fänd ich Schöner. Aber ansonsten war der Film von Bildern, Musikuntermalung und eigentlich der gesamten Atmosphäre her sehr gut. Die Story wurde damit, und den guten VO, perfekt erzählt... mir war nur irgendwie nicht ganz klar wer am Ende in der U-Bahn sitzt, aber meine Verwirrtheit nimmt diesem Film dennoch nicht seine 5 verdienten Sterne.

Langsam, besinnlich und mit tollen Bildern wird hier eine traurige Geschichte über das Leben selbst erzählt. Die Bilder können gepaart mit den tollen Monologen und der dezent unterstützenden, aber nie zu aufdringlichen Musik, wahrlich mitrei�?en. Insbesondere die Kamerafahrten und Kameraeinstellungen lassen erkennen, dass hier ein wirklicher Könner am Werk war. Es ist beeindruckend zu sehen wie bis ins fast jede kleines Detail auf alles geachtet wurde. Nur die beiden kurzen Sequenzen mit den fehlenden schwarzen Balken machen sich leicht negativ bemerkbar, aber niemand ist nun mal perfekt.
Auf jeden Fall hat man es hier mit einem atmosphärisch dichten Werk, abseits herkömmlicher Kost zu tun. Man hätte vielleicht die Geschichte noch besser bzw. weiter ausarbeiten können, aber schon so ist es ein toller, stimmungsvoller Film!

Simply stunning. The cinematography, the story, script, and the voice acting were all top-shelf! The piece that really brought this film to life was the music. From the opening to the close, the music pushed and pulled at my heart so often, I felt as if it were made of clay. Truly, an outstanding job from you and everyone involved in this wonderful film.

Meowan returns with yet another brilliant piece of filmmaking featuring his signature camera angles and graceful movements. The music score is perhaps the most exceptional work I've yet heard in a TMO film, and you used it exquisitely to fit every scene and wrench the emotions from the viewers--truly inspirational. In regards to the story, I was never a fan of first person narratives, and had hoped you would've presented this from a third person perspective, but knowing the ending as I do now I understand why you chose this narrative voice.

This comeback movie shows us again you are a master of the modern camera expertly explores the inner state of mind of the characters, and the atmosphere that leaves the viewers in trance. Another very professional and subtle movie that only adds up to one of the most impressive portfolios around!

Dieser Film hatte etwsa magisches... Diese Art von "Magie" konnte ich bisher nur in einem S&E-Meowan-Film in dieser Konzentration bewundern. Du schaffst es irgendwie immer wieder die Atmosphäre durch die sowieso schon nahezu perfekten Bilder (Freecam etc) mit einem grandiosen Soundtrack zu perfektionieren. Das ist wohl das geheime Meowan-Erfolgsrezept. ;-)

Wie gesagt, technisch in einer ganz eigenen Liga.
Die Story war keinesfalls schlecht, allerdings hätte mir ein wenig mehr Story besser gefallen.

Bei den ersten Sekunden im Film war ich wahrscheinlich genauso geschockt wie der Schauspieler im Film ! Ich hab regelrecht mitgeweint und meine Tränen kullerten die Backe herunter ! Dieser Film ist einsame Spitze und ich freue mich schon auf den vielleicht kommenden 2ten Teil !

die atmosphäre dieses films ist beeindruckend, dieser film hat mich daran erinnert dass auch mit TM atmosphärische und gefühlvolle filme möglich sind. der Sprecher hat eine beeindruckende leistung erbracht, klingt wirklich professionell. die kamerafahrten waren sehr gut ausgearbeitet, und die musik passte perfekt. an diesem film gibt es nichts auszusetzen, ich empfehle eine teilnahme beim bitfilmfestival oder anderen wettbewerben :)

I don't really like romance films, honestly i didn't watch it all, but i will say it is a perfectly film masterpiece. You have always made great films and this what i saw was just as good. When i am in a mood that i feel like watching anything at all, i will watch the whole thing.

Wonderful film.

I am not going to give my usual review list since I can't really find anything that was out of place or wrong with this film.

I loved the mods, the music and the storyline. The camera work was excellent. I might have missed something because I am a bit confused about the subway scene but I'll have to watch it a few more times to see if I can figure it out.

Very touching and emotional. This film does deserve 5 stars. Nice job.

I just watched it a second time just to catch some filming details... I think I finally pieced the whole story together (I saw it in a new light) and it made me cry. It's a beautiful story in many ways. The filming techniques, voice-acting and audio-visual components of the film combined to make a great movie.

Starker Film über das Ende der Beziehung und einigen sehr gut ausgearbeiteten Monologen. Lässt sich eigentlich nichts schlechtes drüber sagen. Das Drehbuch funktioniert, die Regie ist wie üblich klasse und die Musik haut richtig rein. Auch die Vo gefällt mir sehr gut, wobei vor allem die gefühlvoll gesprochenen Monologe punkten.
Die Thematik des Films um die Momente hatten wir schon in "Das Gewicht der Sekunde" und ich fand es dort wesentlich ausgearbeitet (basiert natürlich auch auf einem Roman bzw. Film).
Wie dem auch sei, ein sehr gefühlvoller und auch sehr guter Film. Anschauen lohnt sich auf jeden Fall!

Ich habe schon lange keinen Film mehr auf TMO gesehen, der mich so tief berührt hat und dieses "Gänsehaut-pur"-Feeling aufkommen lie�?. Wie Andy schon schrieb: Ein Film wie ein Gedicht. - Es sind vornehmlich diese langsamen, wunderschönen und bis ins Detail durchdachten Kamerafahrten, die mich beeindruckt und fasziniert haben und die diesem Film diese ganz besondere, fast schon wehmütige Atmosphäre verleihen. Dazu David Cresswells gefühlvolle Monologe und die ebenso passende Musik von Scott Buckley.
Fazit: Meowan at his best! Unbedingt anschauen!

Ein sehr ruhiger und sehr gefühlvoller Film, der durch sein konstant bleibendes, ruhiges Tempo funktioniert. Ist eben insofern ein "Gesamtkunstwerk", weil Off-Text, Bild und Musik eine Einheit bilden. Mir persönlich gefällt insbesondere die Endsequenz.
Ehrlich gesagt kann ich gar nicht wirklich begründen, was oder wieso mir der Film gefällt. Es ist in etwa so wie bei einem Gedicht. Man hört es, lässt es wirken und fühlt etwas oder nicht. Und auf diese Weise funktionierte dieser Film bei mir.
Gute Arbeit mit üblich schöner Kamera, auf die ich - wie gesagt - immer stehe. :)

You are correct, Meown is back. I loved every apect of this movie the direction, the music, the editing was flawless and theVA's were incredible great job

A reflective kind of machinima in the style of the meowan classic �??Am Ende der Distanz�?? and the wonderful Frenhofer flick �??Das Gewicht der Sekunde�??. That is what came into my mind as I watched it. It doesn�??t really reach the heights of those two masterpieces. I knew the direction of the ending before I saw it. It was predictable.
But�?�.
The brilliant spoken monologues and the speechlessness of the acting characters in their personal dilemma is the unchallenged strength of this plot. And that makes it to a good one. Scott Buckley did an outstanding job in creating this moving piece of music. It fitted to the slow, reflective style of this movie. The VAs David Cresswell and Crystal Lonnquist were absolutely convincing. The direction was strong. The set dressing, the cut, the camera were absolute convincing. The slow and flowing camera style matches wonderful into the calm and dramatic plot. This movie has atmosphere. And that makes it to an enjoyable piece of machinima.
�??In the Nick of Time�?? is a solid, coherent kind of movie. The different technical layers (cut, camera, setdressing, voices, music or the like) are interacting with each other and leading to an atmospheric experience. That is the reason why this movie convinces me!

Phenomenal... No, fantastic! No, great!
It was very beautiful, I loved it. You made a great work: the free cam was excellent, I really liked it. The story was original and the VO's were fantastic! One of the best romance movie on TMO. Bookmarked!

Sincerely, Eagle_93.

Beautiful movie. That I always like about your (the few I have watched) movies is the pacing ... You always seem to push on right button and it just flows like wather. That combned with wonderful music really has the ability to touch my heart, and in that coherence, I really have to commend you. Add great story telling, with a beautiful message and you have another classic movie from your studio.Absolutely stuning meowan.
