Only Yesterday

Directed by Isao Takahata


Only Yesterday is an animated film that follows its protagonist, Taeko, both as a 27-year-old traveling from Tokyo to the countryside in the present and as a child in 1966 through her memories. The film didn’t receive an English dub until 2016, but given the quality of the English voice acting, it would be better off without one. Only Yesterday meanders and, at times, drags and wanders, but in a charming way, and with an uncommon sincerity.

Would see.
