YesAsia Editorial Description
After inhaling some strange lavender smoke in the school laboratory, 16-year-old Kazuko's (Harada Tomoyo) life takes a strange turn: her days keep repeating themselves. She eventually realizes that she has acquired the ability to leap through time, allowing her to experience the future before it happens. In the midst of these surreal events, Kazuko falls in love with her classmate Kazuo (Ryoichi Takayangai), as memories of their time together keep running through her mind. But it turns out he isn't who he seems to be.

Enjoyable time-travel flick
"Girl of Time" is an early effort from director Obayashi Nobuhiko that features teen romance, cheesy special effects and a tale of a girl who has come unstuck in time. High school student Kazuko (Harada Tomoyo) and fellow students are tasked with cleaning up after class. Kazuko soon goes missing. She turns up lying unconscious on the floor of the science lab. When she recovers, she says that she had found an overturned beaker spewing lavender-scented fumes that caused her to pass out. So begins a series of very strange events in Kazuko's life.
After the incident at school, Kazuko seems to keep reliving events over and over again, as if she is experiencing a kind of perpetual deja vu. The only person to whom she can confide this strange phenomenon is her classmate (and secret crush) Kazuo (Takayanagi Ryoichi), but Kazuo harbors a secret of his own that will turn pretty Kazuko's world upside down.
The film unfolds its story at a decidedly measured pace and relies for much of its gentle charm upon the sweetly earnest performance of young Miss Harada. (Harada Tomoyo has gone on to a long and successful career. For an excellent example of her mature work, I highly recommend the film "The Youth of Kamiya Etsuko".) The film's biggest weakness is the leaden performance of Takayanagi Ryoichi. Fortunately, Miss Harada more than makes up for this weak link.
Intriguingly, director Obayashi begins the film in black and white, then slowly adds dashes of color, giving the film the pastel look of a hand-tinted painting; he uses the same pastel palate effectively to add a dream-like quality to a couple later scenes. The artfulness of these scenes makes the stodginess of the time-travel sequences even more surprising. "Girl of Time" may be a bit dated, but it makes for very pleasant family viewing.
