Third film in Osamu Tezuka and Eiichi Yamamato's Animerama trilogy, following A Thousand and One Nights (1969) and Cleopatra (1970). It is the only one of the trilogy not to be co-directed by Tezuka, who left Mushi Production shortly after the initial story treatment was written. Tezuka is uncredited on the film. See more »
There are no ending credits or a 'THE END' title; all the credits are at the beginning. The opening theme is reprized over a blank screen after the final scene. The 2015 restoration adds a copyright byline and credits for the restoration. See more »
As another reviewer stated, calling this an Anime would probably set false expectations to this movie. Calling it an art animated film on the other hand is exactly the right description for it. And it is visually stunning and more often than not irritating. It may be telling a story, but it also messed with your head optically.
This is very adult, but not in the way some may think. Or not as explicit as some may think this would be. This is clearly about sexuality, about discovering oneself, about boundaries, about liberation of ones own sexual nature and freedom, especially from a woman's point of view. To say you have to be open minded would be an understatement ... a very big one. But if you let yourself onto this ride ... well you'll discover things I reckon ...
