The Girl Who Leapt Through Time
The story is about Makoto, a young girl who, after a mysterious incident in the science lab, discovers that she can move backwards in time. Well, more specifically (and as the title suggests), she can leap back in time. At first Makoto is having a blast with her newfound powers, but quickly enough she learns that changing the past can have dire consequences for the future. Will she be able to undo her mistakes and create a happy future for herself and her friends?
This is a very sweet movie about friendship, love and learning to understand and deal with the consequences of one’s actions (however it gives a falls impression of the practicality of seriously short school uniforms. That skirt is not ok for leaping in public!). It has won several awards, including the Fantasty Filmfest Official Selection 2007 and the Japan Academy Price of Animation of the Year 2007. It is absolutely a film worth watching!
