5 Centimeters Per Second is a poignant film about first love, missed opportunities, and unrequited feelings, unfolding in three interconnected pieces against the backdrop of breathtaking Japanese landscapes.

In his signature style, Makoto Shinkai explores the timeless theme of love, from the agonizing anticipation of reunion to the heart-wrenching pain of a broken heart, and the profound impact it can have on our destinies. What appears as a simple school romance at first glance evolves into a deeply lifelike coming-of-age story with realistic characters, recognizable situations, and a bittersweet tone. Melancholy and sadness over lost and unattainable things permeate Shinkai's anime from start to finish, whether in everyday domestic scenes or almost photographic depictions of cities, fields, seas, and skies.

The title refers to the speed at which cherry blossom petals fall, a subtle metaphor reflecting both the diverging paths of the main characters and the ephemeral nature of life and love.
