Did You Know?

Trivia

This movie is sequel of sorts to the original novel by Tsutsui Yasutaka, and the 1983 live-action movie - the main character's aunt is Yoshiyama Kazuko, the protagonist of the novel. The scenes featuring her in this movie are liberally sprinkled with references to the original novel and movie, including her description of a Sunday that was suddenly over before she knew it, and her former boyfriend who promised to return some day, to give a few examples. See more »

Goofs

Spoiler: During the time-stop sequence Chiaki laments that he will not be able to see the painting he has come to the past for because it is in restoration and he will not be around the next day when it is put on the wall. But Makoto knows that the picture is worked on by her aunt and so they could just go upstairs and take a look at it (they may find the door locked but the possibility is not even mentioned). Chiaki's last jump could not have erased that memory because Makoto's knowledge predates the event. See more »

Quotes

Kazuko Yoshiyama: It's a mysterious painting. If you look at it for a long time, you feel completely at peace. We don't know its artist, or whether it even has any artistic value. But... we learned one thing during the restoration. This painting was drawn hundreds years ago in a time of war and famine.
Makoto Konno: Why did someone draw this painting when the world was on the verge of destruction?

I'll Tell You Some Other Time
27 December 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Rarely do I buy a film on DVD without having either read up about it or seen it first. The Girl Who Leapt Through Time was the first exception for me. For a dull anecdote, I walked through the store, saw it, and bought it, without knowing anything other than what was written on the back. When i got home, I didn't even start to watch it! But waited until after dinner to watch it, and to cut the already long story short, watching this movie was an experience! From the very first scenes I was grabbed. The artwork, I must say I adore, the scenery is beautiful. As for the storyline, sure, we've had time-travelling stories before, but there's never been one which after seeing it, made me want to watch it again (Seriously, as soon as it was over, I watched it again!) Cutting the even-longer story short again, I highly recommend this film, even those who are not lovers of anime might find themselves enjoying this film. Watching this movie was like an experience for me, and as odd as it may sound, I felt really warm inside after watching this. 9/10.
