Student girl Konno Makoto has a very bad day. Everything goes wrong and to top it all off in the afternoon she dies in a lethal accident… only she doesn't.

In fact, she finds herself transported a few seconds back in time and manages to avert her deadly fate. As Konno slowly discovers, she has acquired the power to jump back in time and change things at will!
Soon, she starts the whole day over, but this time without errors, only to discover that sometimes her winnings are someone else's losses. Before she knows it she's busy cleaning mess after mess. And when things go from bad to terrible she suddenly finds out there is a limit to her time-jumping, possibly leading several loved ones straight into great danger.

My Thoughts:
What can I say about this movie? I simply love it! It became my favorite movie of last year. Even though I saw it 3 times during the last 6 months I had to include it in this marathon. I like it how in the beginnings the time jumps are simply played for fun but it gets more serious as the movie goes on. Sadly there is no RC1 release yet, but it is said to be coming this year. I recommend to watch out for it! Also there is a Korean 3-disc release with English subtitles available (the German release has only German and Polish subtitles).

Plot:
Out-of-work actor Victor Bukowski (Douglas Henshall - This Year's Love) is desperate to stop his ex-girlfriend Sylvia (Lena Headey - Face) from marrying another man.
Then, miraculously, he is given a second chance to go back and correct the mistakes which led to their relationship breaking down.

But will turning back the clock really change anything at all?

Set against the colourful backdrop of London's Notting Hill, IF ONLY is a magical and hilarious romantic comedy with a fantastic cast which also includes Charlotte Coleman from FOUR WEDDINGS AND A FUNERAL and Neil Stuke from television's GAME ON.

My Thoughts:
When I first saw this movie, I find it dull for the most part, but picking up at the end. It was about the same this time around. I decided to rewatch this movie now when I saw that Lena Headey is starring in it. The last time I didn't know her yet.

"Due South" marathon, a review by Tom


3.07 Seeing Is Believing (1997-10-12)
Writer: Paul Haggis (Created By), Michael Teversham (Writer)
Director: Steve DiMarco
Cast: Paul Gross (Constable Benton Fraser), Callum Keith Rennie (Stanley "Ray" Kowalski), Beau Starr (Lt. Harding Welsh), Camilla Scott (Inspector Margaret Thatcher), Tony Craig (Detective Jack Huey), Tom Melissis (Detective Dewey), Ramona Milano (Francesca Vecchio), Gordon Pinsent (Fraser Sr.), Polly Shannon (Judy Cates), Ross Hull (Keith Warren), Bruce Vavrina (Mike Bennet), Anne Marie Loder (Stella Kowalski), Yanna McIntosh (Candace Madison), Susan Coyne (Penny Morton), Sean Sullivan (Dennis Fagan), Mif (Johnny Maigot), Dolores Ettienne (Elderly Woman)

A really great episode. Ray, Lt. Welsh and Inspector Thatcher all witness the same crime, but their statements do not match. Now it is Fraser's job to get to the truth. This episode features a lot of great banter between the characters while they are trying to convince each other of each other's views. And Francesca is trying to get Lt. Welsh to buy a Cappucino machine for the station during all of this.
