There are alot of Japanese films now avalible here in the UK (thank God!!!) and this one is a refeshing addition to those others. If you are looking for blood, fights and bizarreness you won't really find it here but if you want a touching and imaginative tale this will certainly be for you. All I can say is its about time this fantastic peice of Japanese cinema and tha amazing actress Naka Rissa finally had their UK debut!!!
I would of never heard of this film being available if it weren't for Amazon recommending me this item, presumably because I purchased 'The Girl Who Leapt Through Time' anime, for some reason I had an impulse to take on this recommendation and purchase it, well I'm so happy I did!
This is a very heart-warming film, it manages to get your emotions all over the place, from sad to happy & even the odd laugh now and then.
If you've seen the anime then undoubtedly you will enjoy this fantastic live-action version, although it's slightly different to the anime of how certain events happened, it doesn't decrease the enjoyment at all.
Overall I'm glad I had bought this film, both me and my sister watched it together and loved every second, it even managed to make both of us cry, I recommend this film to everyone.
I should point out that this is not actually a live action remake of the Anime but is in fact a kind of spin off story that has similar elements and feel to the Anime.
I really enjoyed it and there are some great moments in the film - Very amusing points and also some very touching moments. Its also quite nice that this story is not just a remake as it goes back to a different time and its very enjoyable to see Japan in that era.
Is it as good as the Anime? Well, perhaps not but I would still heartily recommend it - particularly if you have seen the anime as it's a nice take on the premise and Riisa Naka is very appealing as the leading lady.
Not quite 5 stars but definitely worth a look. :)
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.Read more ›
