Storyline

Aoi and Riku, who have been friends since they were five years old, are part of a band with other students at the university they attend. Riku is known as being unflappable and "perfect" to fellow band members. Rifts and misunderstandings in the band, Strobocorp, lead to a misfired performance on Aoi's birthday at a local festival, after which she has a tragic accident. She awakens to find herself re-living the prior week before the problems emerged, and Riku reveals that he can turn back time. He explains that he has been doing this for years, allowing him to perfect his apparent abilities. They admit to each other that their feelings go beyond friendship as they repeatedly relive the past. Written by Brian Greenhalgh

Immy's review : Touching
28 June 2020 | by heyimmyxSee all my reviews

I wasn't expecting much from this film, as I read the synopsis and it seemed very cliche. And although you could still say it was rather cliche, they did an amazing job at keeping it entertaining and gripping throughout despite its simple premise. The movie had a nice balance of romance, heartache and friendship, neither of which felt overplayed. The chemistry between the two main characters was beautiful and heartwarming, and they both delivered some amazing performances. I could feel Riku's pain and suffering as he tried to save Aoi from her fate, and it was hard watching him break down into tears. The movie reminds us of what it is to be young, in love and not wanting to let go of our good times. The cinematography helped convey this, displaying the gorgeous sunny beaches of Japan, thus giving us a hazy glimpse of those wonderful summers we had with our friends and first loves, which we would do anything to go back in time and do it all over again, as did Aoi and Riku. Although the last scenes were hard to watch, it made the message powerful and clear ; enjoy our times with those we love even if it's short lived, as it's only a waste to worry and ponder over it. I thought the ending was perfect as it didn't follow the usual ending, and gave the movie a sad and thought provoking edge to it. Overall a tragic but beautiful movie about youth, love and moving on.
