Plot – Spoilers:
Middle-aged Hector and wife Clara have recently moved into their country home and are still setting things up. When Clara heads out to pick up groceries, Hector is relieved about the free time because something had caught his eye while gazing through his binoculars – a young woman stripping deep in the woods for no apparent reason.
With Clara away, Hector decides to investigate and plods his way to the woman whom he now finds unconscious and naked. Before he can really take in the view, he’s stabbed in the arm by a bandaged man armed with scissors.
Timecrimes is similar to Triangle in several ways and in our opinion the better-made one.
Even better than Triangle! Wow!
Thanks, been hunting this one down for time
I wanted to see this for years so thanks for uploading. I was expecting more violence but watching Hector screw up was just as much fun
Great movie saw this years ago. Just fantastic! Not fucked up really but just a great hidden gem. Love that its here
Lol Hector is such a klutz. Clever little movie, must watch!
It’s simply scissors or a pair of scissors, not a scissor…
Very good movie. Infinitely better than Triangle
ha this fucking guy. my dad’s name is Hector.
This is a very well done film- well written, directed, and acted throughout. I had to watch it twice to really pick up the subtleties.
The title is the bad thing about it. Seriously, ‘Timecrimes’? It sounds like a JC VanDamme vehicle.
Nice but still prefer Triangle.
I guess its HE for the couple, BE for Stella. I guess the loop remains for the upcoming 1st, 2nd and 3rd Hectors till the last one moved out with his wife from that place.
OK, I’m a sucker for Sci-Fi and this (imo) is a fantastic Sci-Fi film about time travel. A gem of a film. I’m going to say nothing about the plot other than its brilliant. Though a mention has to go to the girl in the woods – hot as f*ck imo with a fantastic pair of puppies (indeed more hot than Melissa George in a similar Sci-Fi time travel film called Triangle that isn’t as good as this film imo). This film, a strong 4.5/5 pair of scissors.
Btw Admin, there are a number of great films I have found on your site that I would add to my DVD collection (e.g., Time Crimes, A Serbian Film, Singapore Sling, Hope etc) – can you recommend a good and reasonably priced site for obtaining uncut EU films such as these?
