Remy Shibata is on her way to a very important meeting: a reunion with 5 team-mates who, decades ago, made up the elite force known as GoShogun. However, Remy is running late, and a cleverly planned detour ends up almost costing her her life. Now, with little chance to survive, Remy's mind takes over and shows us two pivotal events in her past where her life was in danger. Will she learn from the past and struggle to survive? Or just end up another statistic?
What starts as a simple interview of a legendary actress becomes a journey through the history of Japan. But this is no ordinary lesson; from the perspective of this actress, we learn of the beauty and sadness of love, the pain and regret and joy of the Japanese people and their film, through this film: Millennium Actress.
Like this movie, Millennium Actress is an emotional film about a strong woman, blending her past and present with a surreal touch. I also found it by far the better and more involving cinematic experience. If you enjoyed this film, definitely give it a go.
