Venusian Day

If Only (2004)


Movie Review

*** This Review May Contain a Spoiler ***


I liked the romantic thread, the sliding-doors flavor and the idea that one can have a chance to change tragic life events. The movie’s idea of change was to come up with something even more tragic. The ending was pretty heroic, probably unnecessarily so. Never mind the limited acting talent of the lead actors. The only one who did some real acting was the taxi driver,
Tom Wilkinson.

This is not why I am writing this review. I am a bit puzzled by the length of the last day. They woke up, had breakfast, he went to work, then went to a hotel to give a presentation, then went to the pub, went to their apartment, went to her friend's apartment, went to Zinc gallery, then took the train to some distant location which could only be the Lake District, 4 hours away by train each way, climbed a mountain, went into a cabin, lit up the fire, went to a pub, took a walk over a bridge, took the train back to London, took the underground, went to London "I", went back to their apartment, changed, went to the photocopier's place, all of that and a few other small details, then had time to "show up" in her 7 o'clock graduation concert.

What kind of day is that? A day on Planet Venus **?




** A Day on Planet Venus is longer than its Year! A day on Venus takes about 243 earth days while a year on the same planet takes about 224 Earth days!
