Toki Wo Kakeru Shoujo

Ever wish you could control time? The title "Toki Wo Kakeru Shoujo" translates to "The Girl Who Leapt Through Time" and it's one of those movies I'll remember for a long time. It's a movie that's not very new but not old enough to be in the US either. The story is about how a girl learns that even if you can change your chronological position it doesn't mean you'll change things for the better.

"Time waits for no one"

Time thrillers and stories have always gotten my attention since it takes true mastery in writing and story construction to build such a story that holds together. Whenever I experience a piece of work that plays with time I usually end up glued to the screen even though the lesson is always the same. Don't tamper with time, don't fiddle with fate, and don't play with the predetermined. However the process in which characters discover this truth the hard way is nearly always entertaining.

Reminiscent of "The Butterfly Effect" and the story of time travel but with a much more light hearted approach "The Girl Who Leapt Through Time" is a movie that is not to be missed by any.

An OK trailer though id doesn't really do the movie justice.

Maybe I'll go back to yesterday.
