A crazy colorful tale with a forbidden love between a fox and a man
20 February 2005 | by (Berlin, Germany) – See all my reviews

This is a film to proof that there are different ways to tell a story. We are so used to watch the Hollywood style. This film incorporates animation, kabuki and Butoh, colorized experiments, collapsing sets, animal masks (where you realize it is your fantasy which makes the illusion complete and not a perfect computer animation!). It's a crazy colorful tale about a court fortune teller driven mad by a murder, who ends up marrying a fox in human form. Erika Gregor, the formal Berlinale-Forum curator said about the film: "No film in recent years has surprised, fascinated, and also moved me as much." The beginning is a bit dry but it is worth waiting until the magic begins.
