A girl travels back in time in order to save her dying mother in this Japanese sci-fi adventure directed by Masaaki Taniguchi. With her scientist mother Kazuko (Narumi Yasuda) in a coma after being knocked down in a car accident, high school student Akira Yoshiyama (Riisa Naka) decides to use her mother's research into time travel to journey back to the 1970s. Once there, Akira searches to find her mother's first true love and bring him back to the present, where she hopes his presence will bring Kazuko out of her coma. Unfortunately for Akira, she soon discovers that her presence in the past has unforeseen consequences for her future. Written by Anonymous

Sequel to the '83 version
12 May 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the fourth version of Toki o kakeru shojo (Girl who leaped through time) that was made for the big screen, and is truest to being the continuous story to the movie by the same title made in 1983 starring Tomoyo Harada as Kazuko Yoshiyama.

Akari Yoshiyama (Riisa Naka) is the daughter of Kazuko Yoshiyama (Narumi Yasuda). Kazuko is the original girl who've leaped through time 38 years ago in 1972. Although Kazuko's memory was erased about the incident, she still subliminally remembers about Kazuo Fukamachi (Kanji Ishimatsu). One day Kazuko falls victim to an automobile accident, and becomes comatose. Akari decides to leap back to the 1970s to find Fukamachi to help her mother.

Although the story follows the original movie well, the production is rather coarse and details and the visuals of each scenes are crude, lowering the visual experience of the entire movie. Maybe it's because this is the debut feature length movie for director Masaaki Taniguchi. Compared to the original that was directed by the great Nobuhiko Oobayashi, the production falls short in almost all details. I wish the casting was better as well ( except for Riisa Naka). The actors just don't catch the mood of the movie - it's supposed to be a bitter sweet romantic movie, but I just couldn't get any romantic feelings from the actors.

I give this version 4.5/10, and hope that someone will remake this version with quality that matches the original 1983 version.
