Film #124: THE GIRL WHO LEAPT THROUGH TIME
The Girl Who Leapt Through Time
2 out of 5 stars
Competently made anime directed by Mamoru Hosoda (SUMMER WARS) that features some truly inspired moments. Unfortunately, they come far too spread out to hold any long-term interest. The film is obviously made for teenage girls, so it’s target demographic was not exactly one I understood, but… this is a fine film for your tween or teenage daughter. The animation is crisp and the direction does keep things moving, but again… I found myself simply not caring. Well-made, but not something I found myself too interested in.
