Millennium Actress

This is one of the DVDs I move back to the bottom of my queueue as soon as I send it back in. It's hard to bead with subtitles, but my Japanese is mostly non-existent these days.

A movie studio in Japan is closing and being torn down, and a documentarian and his cameraman want to make a documentary on the legendary studio star who has hidden herself away from society for many years. They find her and she is willing to talk. This is hard to describe -- they become part of the movies she remembers and yet not-part. Many things are interrelated and you get more of the real story as the movie goes on. It covers so many emotions -- hope, love, death, anger, etc. -- that you really feel along with the movie. I highly recommend it.
