It is very rare for a drama movie that makes you think at the end. If you want that kind of genre, then this film is perfect for you.
The plot is very exceptional and peculiar. One of the main characters Emmi comes from a parallel universe where time flows in the opposite direction of this universe. She has to meet Takatoshi only 30 days for every 5 years. When they both reached the same age of 20 which is only once in the entire cycle, their love story begins and unfold the mystery. You must watch it from the beginning to end, and everything will make sense.
This film makes me think about the situation of our two main characters and the poignant consequences of their fate. It gives me a realization of the unfathomable reality of life, that time steals away all of the opportunities we get if we don’t take advantage of them when they come. Just like with our protagonist, 30 days wouldn’t be enough to be together, and yet they made everything possible out of it.
The story is unconventional, and yet my heart still aches.
