If you love "Back To The Future", the film is highly recommended
31 July 2007 | by (Tokyo JAPAN) – See all my reviews

I will try to refrain myself from giving out any spoilers...

The movie is about a time machine and going back in time to save the Japan's economic crisis, as well as the mother (Hiroko Yakushimaru) of the main character (Ryoko Hirosue). The time machine in "Back To The Future" was heavily-modfied De Lorean, but in this movie, it is a washing machine from Hitachi!

The movie has values as a modern history study of Japanese culture, in 1990. Do not miss it!

PS: if you like this film, try other films directed by Yasuo Baba as well. You'll love those!
