In 2010 pharmaceutical researcher Kazuko Yoshiyama (Narumi Yasuda) is injured in a car accident. Her daughter Akari (Riisa Naka) uses Kazuko s newly completed time-travel potion to leap back in search of a mystery man from her mother's past... but misjudges the date and arrives two years late, in the year 1974. There, she enlists the help of reluctant student filmmaker Ryota (Akiyoshi Nakao), in a race against time to find a man that nobody remembers.

She is in an accident with a car as she is crossing a road, luckily she is not seriously hurt but is in and out of coma. When she is lucid at one point she tells her daughter AKIRA (Riisa) that there is a potion that will allow her to travel through time and tells her the date to go to so she can deliver a message to a boy that has been photographed with her when she is in High School, but the daughter gets the date wrong and arrives some two years late. She enlists the help of a reluctant student Ryota played by Akiyoshi Nakao to help find this mysterious stranger in the photo that no one remembers. This is the gist of the film and how it unfolds will totally absorb you in the story of how a devoted daughter searches for the boy in the photo and her gradual attraction to the boy she has helping her. This part of the story as it unfolds will leave you so emotional but to find out why you will need to watch the film but all I will say is Akira is from the future
What I find so fascinating with Japanese film is how a subtle facial expression, or a pause can say far more than a thousand words ever could. You will warm to Akira (means light in English by the way)as she searches in an alien time for a stranger no one knows. There is part of the film that will make you cry like a baby you will become so deeply involved with the story. Rissa has such a prodigious acting talent she is totally believable as the girl out of her own time that is 38 years in her past. I am a philosophical melancholic by nature and i so understand this film on so many levels it makes me feel so sad in parts and happy in others I go so deep into the stories
I will end this review here as to go on will spoil an utterly engrossing emotionally intense film that will have such a lasting impression on you it will stay with you for a long long time but in closing if you only ever buy one Japanese film make it this one
Do not expect a live action version of the Anime film, It's only loosely based on that, This film has it's own story and is a spin off, You do not have to have seen the original to enjoy this, Though both are excellent experiences.
