    Mein erster Widmer Wahrscheinlich w re ein anderer Titel der besser Einstieg gewesen Obwohl die Erz hlung nach einem etwas holzigen Start an Fahrt aufnimmt, gar spannend wird, vermochte sie nicht zu berzeugen Zu ausgesucht, zu aufgesetzt wirkt sie ber weite Teile, die Filmgeschichte schaffen es nicht, sich mit der Erz hlung zu verschmelzen Da hilft es auch nicht, dass mir die realen Schaupl tze aus der Kindheit bekannt sind.

    Sentence by sentence, the novel seems fine, but the cumulative effect even given the conceit of movie theater as time machine if that s what it is is eh.

    Quick Review A fun, fast, and at times humorous read Addressing war and the fear of war this short novel uses touches of the fantastical time travel to highlight the futility of the individual in the cursing face of war omnipresent in every generation In using cinema as a lens, the fairy tale existence of childhood is shot through with the fractures of war s violence and trauma Using cinema to depict parallels and engage the darker elements and ramifications of war e.g in the domestic sphere , domestic objects e.g the blue soda siphon pursue the protagonist in his travels as a reminder that fear of war and death are persistent accompaniments from childhood through adulthood.

    Goes to show that novellas are best read in one go and not over two weeks Sadly, the latter was the case for this reader and so the adventurous time line and the movie summaries were too much to really grasp Still, what would have remained bothersome even in a quicker reading is the fact that movie reviews take up such a large portion of the work These are mysterious, no less so because we keep wondering how a three year old should possibly be able to follow such an intricate plot.The idea that you can go missing across time is intriguing and Widmer s use of language will always be wonderful not sure this is a great story, perfectly certain it is rather well told.

    Unser Icherz hler geht ins Kino, erste Reihe, und als er rauskommt ist er 50 Jahre in der Vergangenheit, trifft seine Eltern, die gerade aufgel st sind, weil sein altes Ich gerade verschwunden ist, n mlich in die Gegenwart hinein, wo der Dreij hrige seiner Tochter begegnet Alles sehr nett Aber was das alles soll, erschlie t sich mir nicht Der Vater hatte das kleine Kind auch ins Kino geschickt, um mutma lich mit irgendeiner Lisette zu turteln Gut, am Ende sind beide wieder am richtigen Ort, nur der Hund bleibt auf der Strecke.

    Chi non ha desiderato di tornare indietro nel tempo anche per un attimo e rivedere la propria infanzia, oppure andare nel futuro e vedere i propri figli Qui c qualcosa in pi , un racconto surreale e suggestivo, dove la verosimiglianza non importante, come non importante nei sogni e nella memoria.
