Description:Only Yesterday revolves around Taeko, a single woman working a desk job in Tokyo in 1982, taking a vacation in the countryside with the family of her sister in-law. During her vacation, Taeko finds herself looking back at her time as a young schoolgirl growing up in 1966.

Only Yesterday (Omohide Poro Poro)
Another visually appealing Studio Ghibli flick which actually turned out to be my least favorite Studio Ghibli film, however, it is still a very good movie.

Animation on a Studio Ghibli movie? Always a 10, always. As usual, Studio Ghibli outdoes itself with barnone quality of animation.

The story is what I really didn't care for. It was about a women who reflected back on her childhood and also her present status. While very good, it really wasn't my cup of tea as I fell asleep half way through it. Come ready for a drama story, no action in this flick.

The music was also good, but not the best Studio Ghibli has done, in my humble opinion, I think it could have been better, but then again, I write the opinions, not the music.

Overall a good movie that you really have to be in a nostalgic mood for. If you are expecting action and comedy, you will be extremely disapointed.
