Byousoku 5 Centimeter (2007)

5 Centimeters Per Second ( Byōsoku Go Senchimētoru), subtitled "a chain of short stories about their distance" is a 2007 Japanese animated feature film by Makoto Shinkai. The film won the Lancia Platinum Grand Prize at the Future Film Festival 2008.
The film consists of three episodes which follow the timeline of Takaki's life. It shows how Tohno Takaki, Shinohara Akari and Kanae Sumida's perspective of life changes from childhood to maturity with regards to the factors of time and distance. The first episode, “Okasho,” shows the day of their reunion. In the next episode, “Cosmonaut,” the story about Takaki after the reunion is shown from the viewpoint of another person. The last episode, “Byosoku 5 centimeter,” clips out the movements of their thoughts.






Tono Takaki had to part from Shinohara Akari after gradation from the elementary school. Despite their secret thoughts, only time has passed. One day, Takaki meets Akari in the heavy snow.
Byousoku 5 Centimeter attempts to present the real world from a different perspective. Makoto's film gives a realistic view of the struggles many face against, time, space, people, and love. The movie is named 5 Centimeters Per Second for the speed at which cherry blossom petals fall, petals being a metaphorical representation of humans, reminiscent of the slowness of life and how people often start together but slowly drift into their separate ways.
