  Satoshi Kon, whose "Perfect Blue" brought the Hitchcock style of psychological thriller to Japanese anime, further expands the boundaries of animated features with the magnificent "Millennium Actress," his second directorial effort. "Millennium Actress" uses the true story of a reclusive movie star as a launching point for a tale of mystery and lost love. In a prodigious feat, the film simultaneously explores the history of Japanese cinema and references the history of Japan itself. All of this is accomplished with spectacular animation: naturalistic character designs that depart from standard anime models, exquisite mattes, seamlessly-added computer effects and a bevy of clever narrative tricks. Motivated by the demolition of a legendary movie studio, director Genya and cameraman Kyoji seek to interview the studio's most popular actress, Chiyoko. Retired and reluctant to entertain visitors, she agrees to speak with Genya and Kyoji, and tells them of an enigmatic man she loved, a key he gave to her and her lifelong mission to see him again and return the key. Her career is recounted in the context of her quest. Vivid flashbacks draw Genya and Kyoji into the action throughout this multi-layered time-trip.
