Tripped over this movie on late night TV after a hard shift at work. Caught it just after the intro credits and wondered what it was about. The anime caught me off guard as I had gone to get a coffee and sandwich and thought the film had ended and was surprised to find it hadn't. The music caught my attention more than anything else. There is a classic piece played on the piano by one of the main characters which I have since discovered was not written for the movie as I had first thought. I'd like to track this piece down as it kept me watching the movie to the end. Some of the anime scenes have a haunting imagery to them which the music again complements well.
