I've never written a review for anything before, nor, am i very good at writing them, but, i just had to say something about this movie...

This movie, was beautiful, it brought me to tears. It's a bittersweet love story about a girl, in 2008, who drops her cell phone during an earthquake, and a boy from 1912 finds it. They are able to talk on the phone, and start to have feelings for each other.

There was this one scene in particular, that really moved me, and not to give away any spoilers, i will call it "the gift from Erizen and the old lady/little girl scene" when you watch the movie, you will understand. It was beautiful, and very touching. I've re-watched that scene a few times, and it still makes me tear up...


I'm going to end my review by saying that you should definitely watch this movie, you will not regret it.

In my opinion Tokyo Girl was a nice movie, tough at some points the story seemed to stumble. If a movie touches me I like this and Tokyo Girl did it.
Maybe some scenes, the scriptwriter had could bring them more out and made them more touching. Also the topics which were mentioned are weak, not all of them but most of them. I wished and hoped more for the whole movie.
The actors played okay, but there could be more and better emotion. The music caused the most of the atmosphere and I really liked it. Without the music this film would be not that accetable.

This film is nice for everyone who want to watch a light film, which is not to complicated. Even it is a light film, for sensitive people I would recommend handkerchiefs. So my review maybe seem as I don't like the film, but I really do. I will not rewatch it, but this film will be somewhere in my mind.

I wasn't really expecting to like this movie since I am more into the romance that is with 2 people face to face. I was pleasantly surprised though that even though the two main characters are only talking to each other through a cell phone you could still tell they had a little romance going on.

It was a cute movie and sometimes makes you wonder about what you'll leave behind in the future years. I think the storyline was good and liked the main girl and boy.

It's nice to kind of get away from the typical romance movies or movies where someone travels through time and not an object so that was another thing I like. I will probably rewatch this again in the future ~

"Tokyo Girl" talks about Miho dropping the phone on the stairs by accident. The phone has been there for 100 years in the past, where Tokijiro finds it. They realize they can communicate when the moon is visible. First, they do not realize they are in a different era, but gradually they begin to realize that each one is telling the truth. Tokijiro  sends a mirror to Miho, leaving him with the owner of the store,  telling him that a girl will come and get him 100 years later. The  shop owner's daughter who was five at the time, but when Miho shows up  at the store, now a 100-year-old woman remembers Tokijiro's request and  hands her the mirror and so the story goes on. The narrative is written as a novel based on their relationships, but is very avant-garde. The two realities do not appear as such in history, do not coincide, but become obvious in the end.
The story is kind enough. It is somewhat reminiscent of the 1983 original, as the main character falls in love with a boy from different times. In this movie, what travels in time is not a person, but a cell phone. The film is quite stressful because most of the story takes place between the phone conversation of the two main characters. In general
the movie is good and sweet, could have been better, aimed at girls but captivates all audiences. It's worth watching.
