Movie Reviews

Great Fantasy Movie, Post-Punk
C. Henry | Denver, CO USA | 08/01/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Loved this movie. I'm a westerner, spent time in Japan, loved this live-action fairy-tale love story. Even though the writer/director is somewhere in his 80's, he has a funny, surprising and high-energy style that will enchant you. If you're used to Disney and Pixar, maybe you should give it a miss, because it's off-beat and surprising--but I'm buying a copy for myself--loved it."
Entertaining musical, Ziyi is *gorgeous*
Gadgester | Mother Earth | 10/26/2006

"The storyline is quite silly and so is much of the acting and music, but Ziyi is just breathtakingly gorgeous as princess raccoon in this Japanese "operetta." She also shows off her graceful dance moves. Too bad she doesn't really have as many scenes as a Ziyi fan would have liked. A must-see for all Ziyi fans as well as others interested in eccentric Asian flicks. Quite a change from the usual fistfights stuff -- and all that gangster stuff from the same director. In short, a strange movie, but quite entertaining if you don't mind the oddities.

BTW I bought my copy from "rhstore" in Ohio via Amazon Marketplace (see "used" link to the right) and it's a Hong Kong release by Mei Ah and it's region-free and NTSC (i.e., North America), with English and Chinese subtitles. (Reportedly Ziyi delivers her lines in Chinese but sings in Japanese.)"

"and this film -- quite pretty in itself -- is great fun in every respect. And its various "meanings" begin to reveal themselves with repeated viewings.

And the "Making of" extras -- which are quite extensive, from her first meeting with the director to the tearsome film wrap-up -- are also English-subtitled in this release.

Charming all around. So much so I now have three different releases of it for their different covers.
