Utena turned up to 1000%. Watch after the TV series, then expect to watch it again and again
You thought the TV series was visually absurd? OOOOOHHH BOY! You aint seen nothing yet until you watch the film.
A dazzling surrealist spectacle. Provides some extra closure for the series, though characterisation is spread a tad thin given time limits.
Utena, but as told by the shadow play girls.
I can’t believe lesbians invented dancing in 1999
Distills the main themes of the series into 80 minutes of pure, concentrated symbolism. A feast for the eyes, ears, mind, and soul.
the last 1/3 of the movie totally abandons any pretense of being a coherent story but it’s a fun ride w/ a utenaXanthy end, so no complaints
