    Film Description:
    "Following up on his highly acclaimed animated psychological thriller Perfect Blue, Satoshi Kon spins this mystery about a documentary filmmaker and a legendary actress. In honor of Gin Ei studios 70th anniversary, a small production house run by Genya Tachibana is selected to make a commemorative documentary. Genya decides to focus his film on actress Chiyoko Fujiwara, a massive star who at the height of her popularity retreated from public life. Accompanied by an eager young cameraman, Genya doggedly tracks Chiyoko down to discover her living a hermit-like life of charmed isolation. He also learns that in spite of her advanced age, she has lost little of her famed charm or elegance. As he interviews her, Genya learns of Chiyoko's troubled past and eventually the reasons for her sudden retirement."

    Looks like a good movie. It is a bit of an older title, first released in 2001. But it is worth checking out if you have time.

    You can also get this one on DVD, and it has an English dub.

  • "This video is not available"



  • Oh no, I wonder if it's not available in Canada :/ I got it to play on my end. Sorry about that.



  • It's all good



  • On the bright side, you have loonies and toonies! lol

    For those of you who didn't know, loonies and toonies are the one and two dollar Canadian coins.



  • Well I can't get it to play either. It really seems to be blocked in Canada.



  • on the subject of coinage - Japan, Britain, and the Eurozone, too. The US is like the last big economy with paper for something as small as $1. Japan has 500-yen coins, too.

    On the subject of the movie - should probably watch it, though it sounds so depressing. I liked Paprika a lot, though, because it wasn't creepy and depressing like people said it would be (except for that one butterfly scene), and I liked the art references.

    It's really not all that depressing, but you will get the feels. If you haven't seen Millennium Actress yet, you should, it's my second-favorite anime movie of all time (Behind Macross: Do You Remember love?)
