For the third time, I have found myself drawn to a Japanese time travel movie while on the plane. First, it was Summer Time Machine Blues, way back in 2006. Then it was Orange, in 2016. Now, it’s Cafe Funiculi Funicula, a melodramatic, sentimental supernatural drama about time traveling coffee. It’s not my favorite movie, but it was emotional and interesting, and I think it’s sealed the deal for me on Japanese time travel movies–I’m going to be checking for them on every plane ride I take from now on.
Some spoilers here.
