Tenshi no Tamago

Mamoru Oshii Japan, 1985

angiebasuki's rating of the film Angel's Egg

Though I'm not really getting it, but this is surely a beautiful artwork. The rare dialog succeeded to point out its alienated feel, melancholic music, and great visual experience. There are many frames that will make you just wanna pause and capture it. The usage of symbols like fish, egg, water, cross, bird, etc are perfect for easter holiday. Definitely gonna rewatch it!
