Sung Hyun, who just moved into 'Il mare' receives a strange letter. The letter is from a young woman in the year 1999, two years from the present. Her predictions about the past are amazingly accurate. Her warning about a flurry of snow on a certain day in January of 1998 and the ensuing flu virus turns out to be true.

Eun Joo is convinced that her letter has travelled back in time to December of 1997 and starts writing regularly to her newfound pen pal. A professional voice actor, Eun Joo asks Sung Hyun to find her long-lost cassette recorder at a train station. Sung Hyun goes to the train station and gets a glimpse of Eun Joo, who of course, has no idea who he is.

Calla and Ditto were both made around the same time so they have similar cinematic feel. Both movies also have the same theme of star-crossed lovers who connect through time travel.

Both of these movies are about love in timeline differences where the protagonists communicate with each over telephone. If you liked 'Calling You', you will probably also like 'Ditto'.
Hope you enjoy!

Directed by Hagishima Tatsuya, Kimi ni Shika Kikoenai (a.k.a. Calling You) is based on the same-titled light novel series by popular writer Otsuichi. Like Otsuichi's Waiting in the Dark, which was also recently adapted for the big screen, Kimi ni Shika Kikoenai revolves around two lonely young people who find each other in an uncommon manner. Shy, quiet, and unsure of herself, Aihara Ryo doesn't quite fit in anywhere. Though she wants to make friends, she has trouble speaking up and holding a normal conversation like everyone else. It seems that whenever she talks, the words just don't come out correctly. Gradually, Ryo has gotten used to living life in silence as a lonely and introverted student. With no one to talk to, Ryo also has no need for a cell phone. Longing for friends to talk to, she creates a cell phone in her mind for imaginary phone conversations, and much to her surprise, one day Shinya picks up on the other side. For the first time in her life, Ryo has found someone she can talk to.

One is a movie & one is a drama, and the genres are very different, but both have a lead character utilizing a communication device (walkie talkie & CB radio) to have conversations with someone in the past.

Ditto' focuses on a female university student from 1979 who begins talking via HAM radio with another student from her school. They hope to meet, but through a series of misunderstandings, she begins to realize that the other student lives in the year 2000. This bit of the supernatural serves as the foundation for an exchange between these two, who are separated by 20 years during which their culture has been transformed.

Same year and same vibes, even though "Ditto" is more conceptual. Great directing, script, acting, and chemistry.

A summer hit in HK, this romantic fantasy from Jingle Ma is shamelessly manipulative, incredibly cheesy, and totally sappy. It goes to extreme lengths to yank your chains and push your buttons...and it works. Amazingly, this manufactured piece of sap is also an entertaining, compelling movie. An HK version of Ghost and Always, Fly Me to Polaris stars Richie Ren as Onion, a blind-mute who’s in love with his nurse Autumn (Cecilia Cheung). Before any feelings can be exchanged, he dies in a Meet Joe Black kinda way and proceeds to win a celestial contest. This flimsy plot device states he can have one wish - which he uses to live again. They deny him that, but give him the opportunity to return for one week.
