Tokyo Timeline

#1 Post by sc1957 » Fri May 14, 2004 11:55 am

Found this on IMDB. I haven't checked it for accuracy:

If it's of any interest I've reproduced below my attempt to fix times/days to the events of the film, + various quotes etc. It's in a pretty abbreviated form so apologies if it's hard to make sense of. There are days of the week mentioned in the film so it should be possible to work out which actual days correspond to 'day 1' etc. Please point out any mistakes!
