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
Watched this movie on Netflix streaming a couple of weeks back! fantastic movie!!
The plot is fairly straight-forward - scientist mother invents a liquid that enables time-travel. She has an accident and is in near coma. but she asks the daughter for a favor and the daughter has to go back in time to fix it. Except that the daughter goes back in time to the wrong year.
How the daughter still manages to fix things for her mom is the rest of the story.
I can't really find fault with anything in the movie - except for maybe the overall concept of time travel. It was shot really well and when I connected the dots, it was like "whoa" - that's awesome!
