Also the main power supply for coming back into the present is located above the main clock on the city hall. Everywhere in the movie there are times and clocks to support this time travel effect. There are also many great camera angles, for example in the opening scene where the travelling over the wall also symbolises the time. There are also very smartly used camera angles to show the pursuit of the ‘evil gang’ of Marty. One of the cool gags in "Back to the Future" is the way the town has changed in 30 years.

Because the movie has so much fun with the paradoxes and predicaments of a kid meeting his own parents, and the problems that they see that affect their future life. It is very interesting to see how Marty tackles these problems to make his present life better and to improve his parent's life. A really cool movie with many surprises that are one of its great pleasures. Nils
