Splenid and surreal
4 June 2007 | by writkit-1See all my reviews

This is a great film. A little hidden gem. With the current interest in Asian cinema not to mention specifically Japanese culture I am surprised no-one has commented on IMDb (yet). The film transcends culture however and like all great art, is universal.

Not seen it? It's comprised of five vignettes which mostly focus on themes of love and innocence. A running time of two hours allows for each story to be well drawn and satisfying in its own right. There's horror, sci-fi, romance, anime and all wrapped in a beautifully rich blanket of symbol and surrealism.

Worth a watch.
