Storyline

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

Pretty good.
14 August 2014 | by See all my reviews

I thought the pacing of this movie was a bit slow, but it was still pretty entertaining. It was almost like 3 movies mashed into one, being that there are three main focuses. The young woman who stars as the main character desires to find a mysterious man from her mother's past, find her father, and pursue a romantic interest simultaneously. The thing is, it manages to focus on all of these plot lines succinctly and fully rounds out the characters. The only the thing I would note is the relatively low production quality and often cheesy special effects. I would say it's more of a great work of storytelling rather than a great work of cinematography.
