Operetta tanuki goten (2005)

Quite honestly, utterly bonkers. It’s got the feel of a kaigi-eiga (Japanese monster movie) in that it knows it’s completely OTT and plays up to the fact. The use of a theatre set reminds me very much of the best Hollywood musicals, except the musical numbers were extraordinarily ecclectic and modern (though not in a Moulin Rouge sense). The fact that this was very Japanese gave it even more of a novelty factor. Surreal, but I liked it. You can’t dislike anything starring Zhang Ziyi.
