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

Makoto Konno: When I'm not lucky, I'm really not, but I usually am, so it balances out.

Wow.
11 January 2008 | by oncexSee all my reviews

This film is one of those films that comes once in every generation. The voice actors give the characters a sense of realness that makes you suffer or feel joy. The detail of the work is phenomenal and the story doesn't drag or end in a familiar way. I specially like the detail they put to little things as the sliding doors bouncing back open when Makoto tries to close them. This is one of those films that in the end it leaves you a good feeling and not guilty for spending two hours enjoying yourself. When you see this film you might have to find time to think when was the last time you saw something so good.I just wish there's a sequel for it, because I just couldn't get enough of it. But maybe is one of those stories that you wish it never ended but you know that it has to end.

P.S. Now I have to buy the DVD.
