  1. Mimic Hootings's rating of the film Only Yesterday

    Absolutely exquisite film from Takahata. It can be watched again and again.

  2. Tone Ottilie Frederiksen's rating of the film Only Yesterday

    Probably the most accurate and authentic description of female puberty and coming of age I have seen in an animated film. That said flash backs where so intensely beautiful and full of life that the rest of the film taking place in a world of adults couldn't help but seem a bit stiff.

  3. lidiishere's rating of the film Only Yesterday

    ah, nostalgia. simply true and relatable. adegan paling juara: that moment when she decided to turn back and her classmates surrounded her.

  4. Mattia Ricotta's rating of the film Only Yesterday

  5. Marina C.'s rating of the film Only Yesterday

    Such honesty and poetry of small things, this is such an underrated Ghibli film. Related so much to Taeko - from her childhood to the experiences and changes she's going through as an adult. The ending was the purest and most heartwarming moment I've experienced in a while

  6. jsax's rating of the film Only Yesterday

    A beautiful movie, although the illustrations are not as detailed as other Studio Ghibli movies (and the music is not as proeminent in the story) it is a truly sweet story that combines perfectly the past with the present, pointing out important issues during the plot.

  7. Duncan Gray's rating of the film Only Yesterday

    Walking with your past self while enjoying the present and facing up to the future. I have less use for the city mouse/country mouse plotline than I do for each flashback to childhood—this is the sort of noble movie that aspires to celebrate the big little moments of any ordinary life. It does so exquisitely; not even Pixar can get away with animation like this without throwing in talking dogs. Farewell, Takahata.

  8. Aulia Indry's rating of the film Only Yesterday

    Entah mengapa rasanya kayak campur aduk. Ya sama rasanya kalo nge bayangin masa lalu, apapun itu. Dan sukak banget sama semua gestur si Toshiro, detail banget. Makasih, emg kayak berasa baru kemarin ajh, ngelaluin itu.

  9. Chihao Tsang's rating of the film Only Yesterday

    What a wholesome film! (3.5 Stars)

  10. Eric Eidelstein's rating of the film Only Yesterday

    Nothing more relatable than spending your twenties thinking about the kind of person you were as a kid, the things you dreamed of, the way you treated people, and how that has informed your present.

  14. João Martins's rating of the film Only Yesterday

    Ok, a bit cheesy and all but maybe that's how a girl can grow up in a rural area of Japan during the 60s. The puberty, the menstruation and the not-so-funny jokes of other pre-teens. The animation, the expressions and postures makes the whole film.

  15. De La Ghetto's rating of the film Only Yesterday

    I love all the non-Miyazaki stuff from Ghibli as much as the Miyazaki stuff. And this is a cute, meaningful film about childhood reminiscences in light of the life they must inevitably be later contrasted with.

  16. Eeeeeeeeeee's rating of the film Only Yesterday

  17. Luke Lomeli's rating of the film Only Yesterday

    probably the greatest film ever made

  18. Faizal Agusdin's rating of the film Only Yesterday

  19. Fabio Osvaldo Carta's rating of the film Only Yesterday

  20. Ana Patrícia's rating of the film Only Yesterday

    Cried like a baby at the end. Identified with the main character way too much

  21. smndvdcl's rating of the film Only Yesterday

    An underrated Ghibli triumph where the fantastical has been replaced by a sense of humane social realism. Its depiction of memory and its nature to reform the present resounds. There are echoes of Ozu in its representation of Japanese domesticity but with a progressive feminist undercurrent. A nourishing piece of the Ghibli pie alongside 'Whisper of the Heart'.

  22. Lucia0550's rating of the film Only Yesterday

    De mis preferidas, me hizo rememorar mi infancia <3

  23. HSBilly's rating of the film Only Yesterday

    when all her childhood classmates surrounding her in the end, it was absolute diamond, pretty and heartwarming.

  24. snowykatie's rating of the film Only Yesterday

    a wholesome, nostalgic masterpiece that can remind even the most jaded person what it is like to be a curious, optimistic child again
