Although this isn’t Miike‘s first outing into classical cinema (even if it is some kind of remake), it should prove to be a good watch! Coming from one of Japan’s more difficult periods, it retells a dramatic story originally by one Yasuhiko Takiguchi.
Ocelot‘s outing is said to blend “silhouette animation” while still being screened in 3D, encompasses a selection of tales, including “The Werewolf” and “Ti-Jean and Beauty Not Known”.
Sounds freakin awesome…
The festival runs from the 12th to the 27th October, there’s loads of stuff on each day, and everything probably should be booked in advance!
