Cartoon Summary:


A double period piece that beautifully evokes both the 1960s and 1980s, this is also a quintessential drama of Japanese school-day nostalgia. Bored twentysomething Taeko, realizing that she's at a crossroads in her life, heads for the countrieside. The trip dredges up forgotten childhood memories which unfold in flashback: the first immature stirrings of romance, the onset of puberty, and the frustrations of math and boys. In lyrical switches between the present and the past, Taeko wonders if she has been true to the dreams of her childhood self. Studio Ghibli is known for its strong female heroines, from Nausicaš and Mononoke to Kiki to Ponyo -- but this charming tale of self-discovery may delve deeper into the real emotional experiences of girls and women than perhaps any animated film before or since.
