When 17-year-old Makoto Konno gains the ability to, quite literally, "leap" backwards through time, she immediately sets about improving her grades and preventing personal mishaps. However, she soon realises that changing the past isn't as simple as it seems, and eventually, will have to rely on her new powers to shape the future of herself and her friends.

Truly beautiful film, though be prepared to cry. It IS a little bit of a teen angst film, but it's worth a watch

They should have had told how did the aunt "witch" knew so much about team leaping, also.. why did the painting matter so much? What was so special about it? And why are they using wal nuts for time traveling?

I feel like something is missing in this movie. Perhaps beacuse of the novel, even though the movie should explain why her auntie know so much, and it was the big deal of that painting.
And what Makoto meant when she said "I'll come running" to Chiaki after he told he would be waiting her in the future.
