The anime was nice; but I thought this was a movie for adults, and after seeing it, I think it's a kids' movie. Unless you are really into this type of movie, I would not recommend this for adults.

I cried even harder than Angel Beats! That means something right?..
I recommend both Subbed and Dub. I don't even care.
Seriously at least this movie on it's own is good. Since the Author of the book says not to watch the movie.. Eh I give it my own opinion.

Prepare to cry your eyes out. This film is not easily followed... so watch it twice? Or maybe three times?

Great movie. The uncertainty of how things would unfold int he movie kept us on the edge of our seats. My 9 year old really enjoyed the movie.

Even though I was mesmerized by the top quality of the colourful detail in this animation film, written and directed by Makoto Shinkai, I rated this film not as high due to the complexity of the story, being expressed on film, and I thought, not all that successfully. You have to wait until the end, for some things to make more sense, but you also have to take a leap-of-faith of the possibility of the story line.
No extras to view.

A beautiful, touching film with a spiritual spin. It is not the most original story -- a mix of Freaky Friday and Donnie Darko -- but the writing, artwork, and music make it something more. See it with someone you love. About J.J. Abrams proposed remake: ignoring for a moment the advisability of remaking a film only a couple years old, how could a live action remake work? Possibly a body exchange between a couch potato city boy, and a Native girl who dreams of leaving her village, and whose grandmother is a spiritual leader. The religious and racial aspects would be tricky to handle, but a sensitive director like Taika Waititi would help.

Directed by Makoto Shinkai in 2016, this Japanese animated romantic fantasy depicts the story of a high school girl in rural Japan and a high school boy in Tokyo who swap bodies.
Although the story seems quite simple, it appears confusingly mixed-up on the screen.
In any case, everything looks beautifully animated and it is emotionally satisfying.

A Korean or Chinese movie that I had seen a month or two ago that is live action is very similar to this story. Only it involves time travel. It's a boy and a girl switching places(or time). This movie though was interesting in how the characters communicated and dealt with being switched around. I think the old american movie like this was Big, 13 going on 30, and Freaky Friday.

There is a list on IMDB of these switch movies:

its such a sad story

Jul 10, 2018

Shinkai returns to his familiar themes of unrequited love, trains and water along with a time travel twist. This movie is brilliantly animated and Shinkai displays his ability to create fantastic worlds and mix in teen romantic angst. This is his most playful and light hearted work without too much brooding and darkness although it does get pretty heavy toward the end. Does he still leave the romance unresolved as in his other animes? Any Shinkai fan knows how he ends his stories. Regardless, this is another solid anime by Shinkai, not at the level of animation of Garden of Words, but it is a more fluid work than his other movies.

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!)
