Canadian cinematographer/director Peter Mettler (Gambling, Gods and LSD) travels the globe exploring the subject of time in this ambitious documentary that looks to the future while offering a fascinating glimpse of the world as it exists today. A visit to the particle accelerator in Switzerland offers a glimpse into the minds of scientists who are determined to answer our most difficult questions of how time functions, a trip to the Big Island of Hawaii reveals how lava flows are constantly changing our landscapes, and a visit to Detroit paints a haunting picture of how even a once-great city can slowly succumb to the ravages of time.

i agree with "casem" but must say that I found it had very fine photogaphy which is quite beautiful and varied but couldn't see much other purpose for the film..It should be a good one for an insomniac to fall asleep with as it is a quiet and visually pleasing experience yet disturbing to see deserted areas appearing to be like a "modern ghost town".

Visually pleasing but while linking time to our perception of motion (fast or slow) perhaps linking time in particle physics with geological time, I felt no closer to understanding what time might be. A bit more from what philosophers currently believe would have helped.

Slow moving but with a lot of fantastic footage: a man skydiving from a balloon at 102,000 feet, lava flowing from a volcano, plenty of other diverse vignettes intended to get non-thinkers to think about the phenomenon of time, what it is, how it manifests itself.
