  • This set pairs up two accomplished anime features.

    From its opening image of a lone seagull soaring through a gentle city snowfall to its hauntingly beautiful cloud-drenched finale, Korean director Seong-kang Lee's gorgeously animated feature film MY BEAUTIFUL GIRL MARI fashions a mournful meditation on the end of childhood. An elegiac evocation of the often difficult transition to adulthood, Lee's poetic fairy tale is sure to vivify the world of Korean anime with its truly visionary style and subject matter.

    Director Takashi Nakamura lends his artistic eye to this variation on the classic Pinocchio story. While A TREE OF PALME does not always follow a clear, chronological plotline, its subject commands the viewer's attention nonetheless. Stunning visuals bring the film's fantasy realm alive, creating a world in which the surreal is a reality. In addition to being made of wood, this story's protagonist, Palme, is a robot developed with the latest technologies. A TREE OF PALME follows Palme through a series of wild adventures based loosely around the Pinocchio story. Nakamura develops more complicated themes and characters, however, by asking the question "What does it mean to be human?"
