Only Yesterday is a 1991 Japanese animated drama film written and directed by Isao Takahata, based on the 1982 manga of the same title by Hotaru Okamoto and Yuko Tone. It was animated by Studio Ghibli. I really liked this movie and the message it was sending. It is very beautiful, realistic, and simply a stunning view at what really is, when you come down to it, a normal life. I would recommend this movie to adults 18 and up. It is a story of growth, from a spoiled, bratty child, to a grown and intelligent adult. Rating: 3.5/5 @PrettyKitty of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

Only Yesterday was a movie made in Japan’s Studio Ghibli. This movie was released on july 20th 1991. Only Yesterday was a great movie, definitely old but really good. I really liked the movie and the message it was sending. While I was watching the film, I could feel the different emotions that the main character was feeling. From doubt, to regret, to all sorts of different emotions. Another thing I enjoyed about the film was the storyline. They talked about the hardships of their elder generation who worked in the countryside;no matter how hard the elder generation worked, they could never afford to buy their own made products. I also really liked how the storyline of the movie was much more different than other movies. I personally believe that this film has no real plot twist, this is also one of the differences that makes this movie more original and likeable. The only thing that I didn’t enjoy about the movie was, in some parts of the film, there were very long pauses between the characters and after a while it gets a bit boring. Other than that, this film was very amazing and I definitely recommend this movie to everyone. @Rainbooks of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library
