Synopsis:

In a dark and largely abandoned city a little girl wanders in search of something – beneath the folds of her dress she carries a mysterious giant egg. While living on the streets, she encounters a lonesome warrior who has forgotten his past and his purpose and, like the girl, travels aimlessly. Now they journey together, mistrustful of each other whilst sharing in the silence of the city. But who is the little girl? Who is the warrior? And what form of creature lies sleeping inside the egg?

Twilight Q

Twilight Q

From the depths of the human imagination comes Twilight Q, a Twilight Zone-style set of two tales based upon the paranormal and supernatural. In one story, Mayumi and Kiwako find a camera that supposedly came from the future, with very interesting film and already-taken pictures inside. Secondly, a tale by Mamoro Oshii which chronicles a strange occurance of planes turning into carp in mid-air, much to the dismay of private investigators and the media alike.

Chiefly a recommendation for the second episode of Twilight Q, 'Labyrinth Real Estate'. Both this and Angel's Egg are slow, strange, opaque works from Mamoru Oshii - though 'Labyrinth' is by far the more comprehensible of the two. They also both feature giant fish up above.

Urusei Yatsura Movie 2: Beautiful Dreamer

Urusei Yatsura Movie 2: Beautiful Dreamer
  • Movie (1 ep x 95 min)
  • 1984

The students of Tomobiki are working long hours and preparing feverishly for tomorrow, when the student fair finally will begin. It has been a long, difficult job, and everyone is relieved, knowing it will soon be done – but there’s a catch. They soon discover that days, possibly weeks have passed, yet they never reach tomorrow, and the student fair still has not begun. As they desperately try to discover what is happening to their world, their beliefs on reality and the world of dreams are radically challenged. Is the gang doomed to repeat the same day for the rest of their lives?

These two eighties anime movies were both directed by Mamoru Oshii. Both are largely serious films inundated with dream imagery. Beautiful Dreamer is more normal and contains quite a bit of humour - while Angel's Egg contains little more than a handful of lines of dialogue - but fans of Oshii's films should try both.

Windaria

Windaria
  • Movie (1 ep x 105 min)
  • 1986

In a land filled with magic and mystery, two rival kingdoms are readying for war: Isa, the beautiful water-laden city, and Paro, the industrialized wasteland. Windaria follows the tale of two sets of lovers: Marin and Izu, a young pair of farmers who are devoted to one another, and Ahanas and Jill, princess and prince of the rival kingdoms. With war approaching, these star-crossed lovers will experience the true depth of tragedy as they struggle to survive.

Though Windaria is nowhere near as abstract as Angel's Egg, it does share an interest in using imagery and metaphor to convey meaning in preference to more tradition methods like dialogue and action. The big difference is that it has a straightforward storyline in front of this, making for easier viewing than the bare-bones approach of Angel's Egg.
