[REL] Ano natsu no hi (1999) aka One Summer's Day

In this The Two of Us update, a fifth grade boy is sent to spend some time with his grandfather during his Summer break to keep an eye on the old man, who is feared to be going senile. At first he finds grandpa a bit odd, but gradually the two develop a strong bond, which eventually permits our young hero to literally glimpse into his grandfather's past, view him as a boy on the verge of puberty falling in love with a pretty female peer. A sweet, charming tale which also happens to be one of the better city-boy-visits-a-distant-relative-in-the-rural-countryside flicks made since Le Grand Chemin.

aka One Summer's Day
Veteran filmmaker Nobuhiko Obayashi rounds out the second of his two trilogies about his hometown of Onomichi with this film about the budding relationship between a young lad and an eccentric old man. Fifth-grader Yuta (Takuro Atsugi) is a typical city child looking forward to a summer of reading comic books and playing video games. Instead, he is bundled off to his grandparent's house on the Inland Sea. His grandfather, Yuta's parents explain, has been acting strangely as of late -- he eats the offerings in the family altar and once tried to lead attendants at a funeral in a rousing round of calisthenics. Since his mother and father are swamped with work, and his elder sister (Nana Sano) is studying for college entrance exams, Yuta has been asked to look after Grandpa. The old man takes Yuta on a tour of Onomichi, regaling him with 70 years of its history. Along the way, Grandpa slips in and out of the past, increasingly unable to discern between the two.
Haven't had a chance to look at this or get screencaps, I have had it for a couple of weeks but am releasing it now because it was just mentioned in another thread...

The quality was much better than I expected and so was the film. the scene from youtube is only a small part of the great things this film has to offer. fun movie with good scenery and some interesting characters. :dance

Great movie. I just got a chance to watch it after downloading it two months ago (I guess the board's hiatus was good for something). The relationship between the boy and his crusty old grandfather was both funny and touching and like ptg said, the 'scenery' was nice.

I wish I wasn't so language-challenged. This was pretty 'talky' and without subs I know I missed a lot - and the film was good enough I didn't want to miss anything.

Thanks, FLL.
