Storyline

Forty years after the events of the TV series, Remy Shimada, ex-pilot of the GoShogun, suffers a terrible accident while on her way to a meeting with her former robot-piloting comrades. While they rush to the hospital, Remy floats between life and death. She sees visions of her life when she was young, and stranger still, experiences a hallucination of being with her friends, all of them young again, in a mysterious city filled with hostile fanatics. Far from being the reunion Remy hoped for, a ghastly letter arrives for each member of the team that predicts their gruesome deaths. Slated to die in two days, both in reality and in her dream, Remy struggles to find a way out of the City of Fate, relying on the memories of her friends to see her through, even as they surround her death bed in the waking world.

However they never show the most recent (~70s years old) face, it's always covered with glasses (in the car), medical equipment, and in the final scene, it shows all the members of GoShogun team in their youth.

I am an old man and I've seen a million movies. I don't like anime. The eyes are too big, giant transformer robots are boring after the first ten seconds, and the obsession with schoolgirls is annoying. But late last night I saw "Time Stranger" on TV. I won't try to describe it, but if you've seen it, YOU KNOW! I've been in hospital beds, opiated, nearly dying, and the accurate depiction of Remy's dreams, living in the past, the present and the future all at once was startlingly familiar. Her fortitude, her courage, chambering her last round, tying the gun to her broken hand in the face of monstrous certain death, never giving up, never giving in, to the fight outside or to the struggle within herself! I wept when it ended. See this movie!
