A sweet and subtle film that uses its sci-fi plot device to support genuine character development. I found the "arm tattoo" element of time travel compelling and new, and the film's time-leaping segments are beautifully realized.

There's no super powers, no giant robots, nothing out of the ordinary - but the fact the story and characters are grounded in reality only makes the impact that much more powerful. It's such a simple, sweet film but it just sticks with you. A great coming-of-age story with a twist - perfect for families and just a great film.
