This movie is amazing!! It's an awesome mix of fantasy, slice-of-life and science fiction. One of my all-time favourite animes. Even if you you don't like anime I personally think you'll enjoy this movie.

A beautifully bittersweet story about magic and dreams, love, and longing, and loss. A teenage boy in Tokyo and a teenage girl in rural Japan find themselves occasionally swapping lives when they dream, but--as with all dreams--the memories fade upon waking. As they find themselves growing closer, they also begin uncovering some of the mystery surrounding their connection, and must decide how far they will go to hold onto something precious that seems determined slip through their fingers.

This moviie is absolutely gorgeous, and the roller coaster of a plot was overwhelmingly moving.

A delightful mix of anime, time-travel, and fantasy - this film was a fantastic, emotional roller-coaster ride of confusion. As we slowly begin to unravel more and more of the truths hidden in Taki and Mitsuha's shared experiences, the story becomes more beautiful and complex. It all comes down to this: can you transcend time to save the one you love? This poetic and heartwarming film will have you lingering in the twilight just to experience 'the magic hour.'

(If you're a sap for characters and hidden details like me, I highly recommend re-watching it at least once to see hidden connections and allusions anew.)

Sad, Dramatic, Funny, and Romantic. What more do you want from a movie? Not to mention the animation is straight up beautiful with great compositing and a really cute style.

Extremely BEAUTIFUL animation and music.... BUT....the storyline is EXTREMELY confusing! I tried watching it twice...in both English and in Japanese with English translations...but ended up really, really confused...and extremely disappointed.

Odd little movie. Cant say that I would recommend it. Just strangely put together. Dont get me wrong, we love weird movies. Avid Miyazaki fans over here, but we all agreed this film was just lacking in many ways.

This Japanese movie is beautiful and quite moving. It has the Freaky Friday body swap of two teens but oh it becomes so much more - with elements of time travel, of disaster and apocalypse.

A story of love, with beautiful illustrations and a deep meaning, you definetly will tear up.
Not gonna give away too much because you have to watch it for yourself. (Is a little confusing so be prepared to watch it more than once!)
