Worth a look (as a rental) for fans of the directors others need not apply
27 December 2008 | by (Glen Cove, New York) – See all my reviews

Two half hour stories based on a Japanese anthology series. of interest because of who the director of the second story is-Mamoru Oshii. The show is sort of an animated Twilight Zone.

The first story is called reflection. Its about a girl snorkeling on vacation who finds a camera. The camera appears to have been underwater a while. Curious about who it may belong to she has the film developed and finds one picture-that of herself with someone she's never met.It then becomes a quest to find out about the picture.. Its a slight story stretched to 30 minutes.

The second story is called File 538. Its about a detective watching a father and son and discovering some rather bizarre things. Told in a hard boiled style with minimal animation this is a head trip of a film with planes and koi taking a key role. What it all means I can speculate, but the gods know I'm going to have to see it again to try and make sense of it. While not as dense as Angel's egg, this is a trippy little film about the nature of perception, the universe and fish.

Over all worth a look for Oshii fans- but as a rental simply because the amount of material is so minimal.
