The movie was filmed in Vladivostok, but this is NOT a film about Vladivostok. This is an existential parable. It has soft images, but it affects the subconsciousness with strong emotional power.
The soundtrack is also great, but it has some suspicious similarities with Boris Grebenshchekov (Russian music band "Akvarium"). I hope, this is not a plagiarism, but a variation of his theme.
And, of course, Kusanagi-san is really great. I think, this is one of the best Japanese movies of this year.
