My Tomorrow, Your Yesterday (English title) aka Tomorrow I Will Date With Yesterday’s You (ぼくは明日, 昨日のきみとデートする) hit Japanese theaters on December 17, 2016. Director Takahiro Miki‘s 10th feature film got good reviews and a positive response from audiences well beyond Japan in the months that followed its release.
“Sota Fukushi, Nana Komatsu in surprisingly profound romantic fantasy (…) My Tomorrow, Your Yesterday alludes to much larger themes of time, memory, love and loss, as well as the impermanence of existence and interactions with the world around us and its inhabitants. At its heart, the film also mourns our loss of innocence and the inexplicable heartbreaks that have scarred most people.” from South China Morning Post.

The rescue scene from the making of documentary
Excerpt from the Tokyo Premiere: Nana Komatsu was very moved when Director Miki brought back memories from the shooting and praised his lead actress. The kind of moment that reveals she fully commits herself to a role, cherishes the time spent on a film location which she mentions in interviews more often than not. Tension and fatigue at the end of the year were surely there too. With six films, lots of photoshoots and CMs, 2016 was a very busy year.
Special event in Kyoto where most of the film was shot. December 6, 2016 at Fushimi Inari-taisha (伏見稲荷大社)
