Good Light Entertainment for Japanese History Fans
24 September 2011 | by djhregSee all my reviews

This film didn't win any Oscars, but we enjoyed it. The story was intriguing, there were some good visual effects and the acting was decent.

As mentioned in the other reviews, a time-travel tangled web of family and interpersonal relationships.

The movie will probably be more fun for people who have more personal experience with life in Tokyo, riding Tokyo subways, drinking in Tokyo, romance in Tokyo...being a history buff doesn't hurt either.

Viewers without that sort of personal relationship to the subject may find the movie less compelling.
