The 2002 Japanese 10-short film "Kigeki" is pretty much exactly what you would expect. The animation is very Japanese and the story is packed with supernatural reference, symbolisms and mythological stuff. Sadly, the story is not on par. It is very much a case of style over substance. The plot is a creative idea, but even for such a short film I have to say it was not really executed in a manner that I would call satisfying. The film entirely relies on its atmosphere to stay memorable with the audiences, but this is not enough anymore, also wasn't back almost 15 years ago. However, if you like anime animation style, you can probably still check it out. It is not a failure by any means, just not a particularly good watch either. Overall, I would give it a thumbs down I guess. Not recommended unless you really are a lover of the genre.
