Storyline

Eiri, a talented art student, works part-time in an antique shop in a quiet part of town. One afternoon, he uncovers a delicate Venetian glass that holds a startling secret. When Eiri peers into the glass, he can see a young blond girl, her life playing out like a movie solely for him to see. Curious, he stares into the glass, hoping to learn more about the enchanting girl inside. She is Cossette, a mysterious beauty who haunts the glass, waiting 250 years for someone to finally see her, and set her free. Eiri is soon obsessed with Cossette, determined to do anything he can to help her. Will Eiri see past all the illusions and discover the tragic truth about Cossette, or will he be consumed by anguish and obsession? Written by antidon2000

"Who loves me so much that he would forsake his own dear life... could it be you?"

This was and still is the most confusing, moving, and bone-chilling anime story that has left me a feeling that no other movie as done before...

Aside from Akira, this movie is highly disturbing and pretty bloody, not the movie best fit for those late night flicks. Nor is it for the naive minded who insist on pausing it every ten minutes asking what the hell is going on. Patience and an open mind are suggested, no, are essential to accept this film for what it is, and to see the inner beauty within it.

Never before in my life have I found a filmmaker who has an imagination so far from what is commonly known, even in anime standards. For I have seen films such as, Princess Mononoke (loved it), Spirited Away (o.k.), Nausicaä of the Valley of the Winds (enjoyed it), Akira (hated it), Metropolis (didn't like it), Millennium Actress (o.k.), Ghost in Shell (liked it), Cowbebop the movie (loved it), etc.

Trust me, I could ramble on for much longer, but I don't want to give away an spoilers. I was left completely blank of info about the film when I watched it, and I want to do the same favor for you. It was still an odd experience after watching it to have your head up in and your mouth open in confusion, and having you head stare directly strait with your teeth chattering all at the same time. Brilliant.

Note: all what I said is true, but through various reasons I will probably never see this film again, if not ever.
