A cute and whimsical story, about an ordinary girl who finds she can change time to achieve ordinary goals - but with unintended consequences.

An interesting story nicely told, with the exception of a big deus ex machina near the end, and also the aunt explaining something near the start that she could not possible know (unless I misunderstood!).

I have this on DVD. Saw it a few years ago now so can't remember it too much other than remembering that I enjoyed it.

I thought The Girl Who Leapt Through Time was pretty good, but not one of my favourites.

Watch Summer Wars by the same director. Fantastic.
I don't think I liked that one. It all got a bit crazy and I didn't care what was going on any more.

I really enjoyed Wolf Children, which I think might be by some of the same people (but also might not be).

I'm glad I'm not the only person who didn't like Summer Wars, which was so well reviewed.
I found it increasingly more irritating as it progressed.
Recently sold my DVd on eBay...
