Princess Raccoon

princess-raccoon-1

(2005) dir Seijun Suzuki w/Zhang Ziyi, Joe Odagiri [111 min; 35mm]
This “energetic, inventive and ever-so-slightly insane mishmash of music, magic and madness” (Frank Kermode, The Guardian) stars Joe Odagiri as a prince. After being exiled, he comes across a magical land of shape-shifting raccoons and falls in love with their princess (Zhang). Rooted in Japanese folklore, studded with tunes that range from operetta to hip hop, and set in a fantastical Edo period of the imagination, this film shows Suzuki at his most kindhearted and whimsical.

Subtitled trailer not available
