All About Lily Chou-Chou

Posted by martinteller on July 23, 2005

A stunning, thoughtful exploration of the confusion and cruelty of budding adolescence.  The soundtrack is superb, a mix of ethereal J-pop and languid Debussy pieces.  And the cinematography is quite nice too, though the handheld section in the middle goes on a bit too long and threatens to unhinge the film.  The “making-of” documentary reveals that the story behind the film is almost as interesting as the story within the film.  Definitely want to see more by Iwai.  Rating: 9
