What audiences are saying about COME BACK ANYTIME on Letterboxd, the social network for film lovers:
A really comforting movie which inspires you and makes you feel optimistic for the human race :) ★★★★★ Simonkmiller
The kind of story that makes you grateful to be alongside other human beings, inspiring to do your own part in creating an ecosystem of people whose existence benefits one another. As corny as it sounds, it's the kind of thing that makes me happy to be alive. ★★★★½
A documentary very much about a feeling of tranquility, of peace within yourself and your place in the natural world without being indulgent or esoteric about it. ★★★★ ennaih
A much more affecting and thought provoking experience than I’d anticipated, not only activating my feelings of longing for travel, and Japan, but for closeness and community that have been disrupted through the last 18 months. It managed to raise some deep and complex questions about: what it takes to live a good life; when and how to quit; the difference between work and labour, and most movingly, what the maintenance of place can do to connect and support individuals within a community. ★★★★ Jessie Scott
Come Back Anytime is about savouring the time that we have, and about the community that savours with you when the time you have made for yourself is a product of passion, love, and play. ★★★★½ bestreal
