It’s not often that I venture into the realm of “oldies” anime, but after hearing and reading some comments about Angel’s Egg, I just couldn’t resist. Released back in 1985, Angel’s Egg is a film written and directed by Mamoru Oshii of Ghost in the Shell fame, and produced by Tokuma Shoten.
As far as I could tell, the story is about a girl that is taking care of an egg and a man that befriends her. They live in a dark, seemingly post-apocalyptic and watery world. The only other people around are stone statues that go hunting with “fish” appear in the city. There is almost no dialogue in the film and it relies heavily on imagery.
