Tokyo Girl (東京少女) is a drama-romance-scifi film and representative of most Japanese movies: “The occurrence of an earthquake in Japan is not unusual. What would be, however, is the existence of a hole through time and the passage of a phone through which two people – one hundred years apart – can communicate. When a schoolgirl comes into communication with an aspiring writer, who is studying under poet and novelist Soseki Natsume, the most unlikely of romances ensues.” -IMDB
