Millennium Actress synopsis

At the turn of the millennium, the dilapidated buildings of Ginei Studio will be demolished. Former employee and filmmaker Genya Tachibana decided to honor the occasion with a commemorative documentary about the company's star actress: Chiyoko Fujiwara, the reclusive lover of Shouwa Era cinema. Finally allowed to interview the retired star, a passionate Genya drags skeptical cameraman Kyouji Ida to her, ready to bring his lifelong idol back into the limelight once more.

Hidden in these remote mountains lies a thousand years of history condensed in one lifetime, waiting to be told. Chiyoko's recollections take them on an illusory journey through the history of Japanese cinema beyond the boundaries of reality; The story of her acting career is intertwined with her filmography, the actors in her life blend seamlessly with the characters on screen, and the present merges with the past. Although the actress may have retired at the height of her career 30 years ago, the curtain on the stage of her life has not yet fallen.

Millennium Actress more review

Millennium Actress is a wonderfully crafted story about a fateful encounter of a young girl and how it shaped the rest of her life. Though I am always a little hesitant about awarding such high marks to anything, this movie was one of the most riveting and unique anime experiences I have had.

The story follows a pair of filmmakers who are interviewing a famous actress who has been retired for many years to celebrate the studio's 70th anniversary. Millennium Actress features one of the most original story telling methods I have seen.
