This is one of the most remarkable films I've ever seen. A seamless blend of live action and computer generated images based on a series of early Japanese screens that depicted the first arrivals of the Portuguese in Japan.
It is film elevated to the most enchanting, breathtaking, sublime level of true art. Absolute magic.
The only comparison I can think of is that it's early antecedent might be the work--sadly forgotten know, of the late, great master animator Karel Zeman whose stunning version of 'Baron Munchhausen' (currently out of 'print') has never been bettered.
