Extremely stylish and dignified. This old tale draws its inspiration from classic Japanese paintings and folklore, so don't expect a typical anime. Beautifully animated and sporting a superb score, this film is quite a sight to behold. The story is a little too rigid for my liking, but this film definitely deserves wider recognition, because this was quite unique.
