Descripción del producto
En el pasado, Chiyoko Fujiwara fué la estrella de cine dominante del panorama japonés hasta su súbita desaparición de la imagen pública hace treinta años. Uno de sus mayores admiradores, el realizador de documentales Genya Tachibana, viaja hasta el apartado refugio de montaña en el que tiene su hogar para entrevistarla. Una vez allí, entrega a la que fuera su ídolo de juventud una vieja llave que encontró entre los restos de su antiguo estudio y, como si la llave hubiera abierto la puerta de su memoria, Chiyoko comienza a recordar la historia de su vida. De esta forma, viaja desde el remoto pasado hasta el distante futuro a través de mil años, traspasando la frontera que separa la realidad de las películas que han formado parte de su vida.<br><br> <br><br />-Mejor película Orient Express Sitges 2001.<br> <br><br />-Mejor película Fant-Asia 2001.<br> <br><br />-Mejor película Mainichi Film 2002.<br><br> <br><br /> <br><br />Ésta edición incluye: <br> <br><br /> <br><br />- DVD 1- PELÍCULA<br> <br><br /> <br><br />* Master digital<br> <br><br />* Español DTS <br> <br><br />* Español D.D 2.0 <br> <br><br />* Japonés D.

Principales opiniones de clientes
Cuanto a la calidad de la edición en sí, es la habitual en los DVDs de anime (en mi experiencia, al menos). Se deja ver, pero existen ciertos defectos de imagen más propios de un VHS (básicamente ruido, especialmente vsible en las escenas más oscuras). La calidad de la compresión es aceptable, no muestra artefactos muy evidentes. Contiene audio en 4 idiomas lo cual no es demasiado habitual y siempre es de agradecer. Incluye a modo de extras un making of (en japonés subtitulado).
En resumidas cuentas, se trata en mi opinión de un producto muy recomendable (aunque me hubiese gustado poder escoger una edición en Blu-ray).

Decades have passed, new generations of public came and little by little the great actress was forgotten. Of course, film critics are still mentioning her name when analyzing the movies of the forties and fifties; but they are talking at the past, as of a person who lived in a bygone era.
Has everybody forgotten her? No, of course not, there will be always people passionate for her movies and fascinated by her personality: people dreaming to find her and to tell her their fascination.
And here is the place where Sennen joyû (Millennium Actress) starts: a devoted fan succeeds to find her and she accepts to be interviewed by him. As they start talking, the past comes back in force and overwhelms the present. Scenes from all her movies, and what happened behind the scenes: she was playing the lead role, he was just a young assistant by then. The present is no more, their memories join in a unique flow. The old star and her fan live again the past, this time the meaning of those moments comes enriched: she is now aware of his presence on the plateau. Actually the past is not repeated: the force of their memories makes the past a continuous moment, time looses any significance. There is no more a succession of moments; there are only moments charged with emotional value, that remain forever.
Kon Satoshi is an Animé film director,which was fortunate for this movie, as he kept this way total control over the story and was able to blur past and present, life on the plateau and life outside it; more than that, he was able this way to change completely the image style of each reenacted scene in accordance to the specific period; Jidaigeki movies from the twenties and early thirties, propaganda movies from the period of Manchurian occupation, dramas from late forties and fifties, Sci-Fi movies from the sixties on. What resulted was a fascinating history of Japanese cinema in its most significant moments!
Is the feminine personage in the movie an allusion to Setusko Hara? The director did not confirm this suggestion. Nevertheless I would say yes, for many reasons, the main reason being that for me it is only Setsuko Hara who deserves to be named the Millennium Actress.
FOR PARENTS AND OTHER CONCERNED PEOPLE:
There is nothing to fear. The film is very engaging and immersive...but doing all that without having to stoop to using provocative material, fan service, nor coarse language. This is not a film for children, though, because it's a very mature and complicated film.
This is the first animated art film to truly draw me in. I will tell you, this film is a real trip. So what exactly is this film? It's a documentary, biography, Godzilla, mystery, drama, stage play, samurai flick, sci-fi...yes...it's that hard to explain. One thing that can be said for sure is that this is a wonderful psychological romance that will really test your mind...think "Inception" but ten times more trippy. It is also a story about love and identity...and the chase (which you can discover the meaning of if you watch). The plot is fairly simple...but the execution is very very artistic, engaging, and complexed. I can't describe it, it's just something to experience. And your emotions will fly at times. What I will say, pay attention to the dialogue, it's very purposed. Also pay attention to repetitions, they are clues. The 3 main characters (Chiyoko, the Interviewer, and the Cameraman) are also very charming, but more importantly they serve as anchors to each other - and in some cases a mirror. Also, you get to see the growth and development of people over time in a very unique way...as well as this strange phenomena of choice and retrospect. Simply put, I can't stress how beautiful this film really is. And it will take much more than one viewing to even begin to grasp a small portion of it. The ending is epic btw.
Just to let you know, the film is Japanese dubbed with English subtitles. This is one of the few times that I will say with definite affirmation that this was a wise choice. Though i'm no purist, I do think in this case a dub would have lost something...not because it would have been bad...but because there's a magical and surreal aspect that the Japanese helps to bring in this film.
Well there isn't really any special features except for a "making of..." feature which is an interview/commentary by Satoshi Kon.
ALL IN ALL:
This film will twist your mind in so many fun and meaningful ways. It's beautifully pieced together and lovingly crafted. It is both uplifting, yet sad. It is so simple and yet so complexed. You'll need multiple watches...but each watch reveals a new layer of depth and meaning. All in all, it is a treasured part of my collection. This is not a film for children. It is far too complexed and many of the themes will just fly over their heads on top of the complexity. One cannot watch this passively...but, if you are willing to focus, it can be a rewarding experience. This film may be difficult for some to follow, but then again...the chase can be quite fun.
Here the story structure is intriguing and fresh, it will keep you thinking. Just who's perspective is this story being told by?
The basic story is two video reporters doing a story on an elderly retired actress. But it is how Satochi tells this story and puts everyone into the story that makes this a standout.
Some have said it is a sad story, but it is more of a story of romance and pursuing. But their is more than one romance and pursuit in this story.
Basically, a film director and his cameraman go to interview a famous actress, now in her twilight years, who suddenly and inexplicably vanished from the film world.
She allows them to come to her home and speak to her, something no one but her house keeper has been allowed to do for years.
She tells them the story of her life, and they relive it together through the plots of the films in which she starred. Sometimes the crew are active participants in the story, other times outside observers with camera in hand.
This type of storytelling is not only unique, but also extremely well-executed.
The ending left both in all and in tears.
Copies of this can be hard to find. If you see one, snatch it up.
