The genius of Millennium Actress is infinite
Kambole Campbell, Little White Lies
...Millennium Actress remains one of cinema’s greatest love letters
When the legendary Ginei Studios shuts down, filmmaker Genya and his assistant are tasked with interviewing its reclusive star, Fujiwara Chiyoko, who had retired from the spotlight 30 years prior. As she recounts her career, Genya and his crew are literally pulled into her memories where they witness her chance encounter with a mysterious man on the run from the police.
Despite never knowing his name or his face, Chiyoko relentlessly pursues that man in a seamless blend of reality and memory that only Satoshi Kon could deliver. Boasting countless awards, including the Grand Prize in the Japan Agency of Cultural Affairs Media Arts Festival, which it shared with Hayao Miyazaki's Spirited Away, Millennium Actress is a must-see for anime fans of all ages.
