A Thousand Kisses Deep is a British supernatural thriller film released in 2011. It is directed by Dana Lustig and features Stuart Martin, David Warner, Dougray Scott, and Emilia Fox in lead roles. The movie follows the story of Mia (Jodie Whittaker), a young woman who is grieving the recent death of her ex-boyfriend. She moves into a new apartment and starts experiencing strange occurrences, which leads her to an unexplainable time-passage, and finds herself transported back to 1999, the year her ex-boyfriend died. Mia discovers the truth behind his tragic death and meets a mysterious stranger named Ludwig (Stuart Martin) who claims he can send her even further back in time, to live as the woman she always wanted to be. Mia struggles with the decision to stay in the past or return to the present. In the past, she falls in love with the charismatic and handsome Ludwig, but the two are separated when he is arrested for his involvement in a violent crime. Mia returns to the present day, haunted by her past memories, and decides to go back in time to prevent Ludwig's arrest and the tragic chain of events that will follow. As she travels through time, Mia discovers that her actions have unforeseen consequences and that she may not be able to change the future. She meets a wise and quirky elderly man named Ambrose (David Warner), who has a magical clock that allows Mia to alter her actions in the past slightly. But despite her efforts to change the course of events, Mia realizes that some things are beyond her control. The movie cleverly blends elements of time travel, supernatural and romance. The cinematography is excellent, and the film beautifully captures the appeal of mid-1990s London. The exploration of the bittersweet themes of loss and regret, and questions related to the futility of time travel with respect to altering the events of the past, will leave a lasting impression on the audience. The acting is impressive, especially Jodie Whittaker, who convincingly portrays the emotional turmoil of a girl grappling with the regret and grief of a failed relationship. Stuart Martin plays the charismatic Ludwig, and Dougray Scott plays the role of the charismatic but abusive ex-boyfriend of Mia. Overall, A Thousand Kisses Deep is a poignant, intriguing and engrossing film that explores the complexity of time travel with respect to altering the events of the past. It is a movie that could leave the audience reflecting and questioning if time travel is really an impossible dream.
