Einmart

Einmart 1981

"... extraterrestrial Icarus... uncharted hinterland... glimpses of live-action early on give way to bizarre deserts dotted with vast, crumbling stone ears, and weird creatures made of assorted human parts, dragging themselves around on what ought to be their necks... With story excised, the action resembles a nature documentary, one which David Attenborough has fled from in revulsion... journey across a boingy brainscape..." - David Cairns for MUBI.

The Acorns and the Wildcat

The Acorns and the Wildcat 1988

The Acorns and the Wildcat is a unique short film in picture-book format from the creator of Night on the Galactic Railroad and Gauche the Cellist. Unusually for an anime, a narrator reads Kenji's story aloud while the action is played out on the screen by a succession of warm and evocative illustrations brought to life by subtle touches of animation. If the film feels somehow familiar yet you can't put your finger on the reason why, it's probably the sumptuously minimalist animation by Yasuhiro Nagura, who was the animation director of Mamoru Oshii's artsy 1986 feature Angel's Egg. That, and Kenji's wildcat is said to have been the inspiration for Miyazaki's Panda/Totoro creature. The idea of reading Kenji's story aloud instead of playing it out as a drama is quite refreshing, and Kenji's magical language and narrative style are entirely sufficient to sustain interest. Combined with the spacey music and breathtaking art, the result is a pleasantly unassuming little gem of a film.
