Time after Time DVD cover

Time after Time, a film shot in Ireland, North America and Australia that celebrates the great heritage of ancient Celtic, American and Australian peoples. Time after Time is beautifully shot, its style comparable to other films found on this website.  Yet Time after Time has its own theme and style.

Time after Time is a film that highlights the great beauty and diversity of the landscapes and peoples of Ireland, North America and Australia.  The colourful landscapes of each of the countries is captured magnificently in Time after time.  The richness of colours gives a wonderful feel to the film.

The soundtrack for Time after Time has the presence of the human voice.  Poems and songs accompany the diverse music of the film.  Although not scripted dialog or narration I found the presence of a voice unusual at first.  However I soon found the initial poem adding to the mood. 

After an introduction the film has a chapter for each of the countries shown in the film.  The beautiful coastline and woods of Ireland make a beautiful subject.  Watching the images in Time after Time gives me a great sensation as they remind me of my own Celtic homeland of Cornwall, England.  Most images are of the Ireland most people are familiar with, yet many images show a side perhaps we don't know.  The Celtic poems and songs add greatly to the mood.  The underwater images suggest a great diversity to the filmmakers techniques. The image of Celtic symbols give a real sense of history. 

Time after Time has a change of mood as the film continues onto North America.  The beautiful winter landscapes are captured so well a chill fills the air.  Time after Time is also warming with the shots of the sun drenched inner heartland of North America.  There are shots of paintings from Native American tribes now gone.  I felt a similar feeling to that experienced from many scenes in Baraka.

Time after Time ends with Australia.  The vast and diverse land and its people are captured.  This is one of the best insights into Aboriginal life I have seen, even having spent a year living in Australia.  There are great scenes of Australia's bright and elegant wildlife.

Time after Time is a unique film.  Its style is individual and yet familiar with many other films.  The wildlife scenes as good as Microcosmos, and the capturing of people as good as Baraka.  Time after Time's distinct soundtrack and content makes a great film.

Time after Time was created by Maireid Sullivan and Ben Kettlewell.  I hope the pair make equally great films in the future.
