"Ultimately, this is a film about guilt, grief and accountability, the chaos of war clashing with the sterility of an after-the-fact trial as the boundaries between blame and bravery are blurred beyond resolution." Mark Kermode, Observer. A company commander and his men are stationed in an Afghan province. Meanwhile back in Denmark his wife is trying to hold everyday life together with a husband at war and three children missing their father. During a routine mission, the soldiers are caught in heavy crossfire and, in order to save his men, the commander makes a decision that has grave consequences for him and his family back home.

"Mr. Takahata's psychologically acute film, which was based on a manga, seems to grow in impact." Nicolas Rapold, New York Times. Directed by Isao Takahata and produced by Hayao Miyazaki, the animated Only Yesterday celebrates its twenty-fifth birthday with a major US theatrical release. An unmarried career woman takes her first trip outside of Tokyo and daydreams about her pre-adolescent self.
