He too seems to voyage back to the time of their youth. But how much of their visions are subjective distortions due to drugs, alcohol, yearning or growing mental unbalance? Why has Harvey hired him after decades of estrangement following Rachel’s death? Isn’t it to expose him to the rays of the time machine that are killing its inventor? Why does Jerry try to sabotage return to Rachel?All those questions. And at the end startling answers.Harvey Morgenstern promises miracles but the dying genius’ so-called time-machine is anything but impressive : a dusty old black-and-white TV in the basement stuck on one channel and showing a table-leg out of the 1930’s, the ghostly image of a conversation between two long-dead women, a pair of dogs in ancient endless copulation.Harvey promises better things to his penniless assistant and former friend Jerry Weizman : a way to slow down time and project oneself back to loved-ones, above all back to Rachel Rosen, dead in mysterious circumstances half a century earlier, and loved by the two young men.Jerry is slowly sucked down into Harvey’s obsession.
