(br) wrote: For me, the two strongest points in the narrative of The Girl Who Leapt Through Time is the humour and outcomes that are both portrayed in the time travel aspect of the film.In relation to the humour, the script has a clever way of portraying the funny circumstances that could happen if somebody were to use time travel for their own desires, which is exactly what happens to Makoto and her friends in the 1st half of the film.In regard to the outcomes portrayed in the events of the film, what I love the most about The Girl Who Leapt Through Time is the way it portrays time travel from a very negative perspective, particularly in the 2nd half of the film. I feel like Mamoru Hosoda is saying that the tough circumstances we face in life could always be worse and that affecting them for our own benefit could lead to possibly worse consequences than we ever anticipated, which is exactly what happens to the people surrounding Makoto, so it's almost like we live in the best of all possible worlds and that we should appreciate the life we have now. This all leads to some good emotion and twists in the narrative during the 3rd act.Overall, while I do prefer Hosoda's two later films, Summer Wars and Wolf Children, a little bit more, I do still really love The Girl Who Leapt Through Time. It has an excellent balance of comedy and drama and I think it's a very strong start to the director's career of feature length Anime films.I really can't wait for his next film, The Boy and the Beast. With Studio Ghibli potentially not making any more films, the works of Mamoru Hosoda are the next ones on my radar for now.
(de) wrote: THE SCARY LEAK. Tries to be subtle but is actually just unclear (and boring most of the time). Does succeed in creating a fantastic world out of an entirely normal situation as I suppose ghost stories should. Reminded me a bit of 'Candyman' in atmosphere and setting. In fact it has that same kind of feel as I find 'Candyman' has of being a not quite perfect entry in an anthology of ghost stories. I wonder if the original is any better.

(es) wrote: Not one of those movies you can take seriously. Tom Selleck is great as the not so successful novelist who turns to a mysterious Romanian woman played very well by Paulina Porizkova, for inspiration. It's pretty funny if you can just turn your brain off for a while. Great support for the rest of the cast and a nice score by Georges Delerue.
