Only Yesterday/1991/Japan

FiC Rating 5/5
Dir: Isao Takahata
Why FiC Recommends?
1) In these days of hurries and worries the doleful and wretched existence of ours, Only Yesterday is enough to justify Studio Ghibli’s importance as it celebrates the effort of taking a moment to appreciate our individual journeys.
2) This trip down the memory lane showers a holiness over it’s viewers and brews an air of melancholy and nostalgia, exhumes the underlying spiritual strength of life’s most basic concerns.
3) The overwhelming sense of attachment and intimacy of first love, the innocence of childhood, the emotional swings during puberty and the resentment over unfulfilled dreams that shapes us the way we are, Only Yesterday contemplates over life’s most precious gift of all, memories.
