      Roxana Hadadi Chesapeake Family Magazine Only Yesterday is one of Studio Ghibli's films aimed primarily at female viewers ... an intentional story that is emotionally honest. Rated: 3.5/5 Aug 2, 2016 Full Review Peter Bradshaw Guardian There is real artistry here: it is a must. Rated: 5/5 Jun 2, 2016 Full Review David Jenkins Little White Lies A(nother) animated marvel from one of cinema's unsung maestros. Rated: 4/5 Jun 1, 2016 Full Review Jordan Brooks Vague Visages An enchanting film that surreally embraces the child within. Aug 1, 2023 Full Review Sean Axmaker Stream on Demand Takahata takes his time wandering through the experiences of the grown Taeko and the memories of her younger self.... But it’s no time travel fantasy. Rather, these images remind us of how the past is a part of our present. Jan 7, 2023 Full Review Michael J. Casey Michael J. Cinema Takahata takes full advantage of the medium, allowing past and present to overlap in magnificent and poignant ways. Rated: 4.5/5 Aug 13, 2021 Full Review Read all reviews

      Chase C Dev Patel my king!!! Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 03/23/24 Full Review Robson C Taeko é uma mulher de 27 anos, solteira, que decide passar as suas férias no campo, trabalhando em fazendas locais. Isso se deve porque, quando criança, ela queria passar as férias escolares no campo como suas amigas, mas como ela não tinha parentes morando lá, ela continuava em Tóquio. Porém as memórias de quando tinha dez anos voltam, ela deve resolver que rumo ela dará para sua vida. Um delicado drama, que mescla muito bem presente e passado, mostrando como o que aconteceu quando ela tinha 10 anos, marcou a sua vida adulta. Ao mesmo tempo que elogia a vida no campo, com belíssimas representações da vida rural, o filme critica muitas coisas como a vida dura dos agricultores e o pouco incentivo a eles, o machismo ainda muito infiltrado na sociedade japonesa, com a história sobre menstruação quando a protagonista era criança e as críticas que ela recebe por ter 27 anos e ser solteira e ela indicar que muitos amigos dela continuam solteiros com essa idade, demonstrando uma mudança na sociedade. O filme tem um ritmo lento e contemplativo que pode afastar algumas pessoas mas, no final, temos mais um belíssimo trabalho dos Estúdios Ghibli. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/19/24 Full Review Holly S Putz, como esse filme é bom. mds do céu Rated 5 out of 5 stars 12/27/23 Full Review Ashish P Only Yesterday has a really endearing story at heart, but the poor pacing makes you feel the length of every minute Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 12/06/23 Full Review agnes w Must see original Japanese language version. Eng dub is terrible. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 09/22/23 Full Review Parker E It seems like it was only yesterday. How many times have you thought back on all the strange and awkward moments in your past? Did you laugh, shudder in embarrassment, cry? Rated 4 out of 5 stars 08/31/23 Full Review Read all reviews
