Sample text

The effectiveness of Takahata’s method in communicating his vision is memorably attested to by the wordless montage of snapshot recollections of Setsuko flashing through Seita’s brain after her departure. It is further corroborated by the recurrent sequences in which the protagonists are depicted as spectral presences beyond space and time, dexterously intercut with the main story so as to disrupt linearity and create pauses for reflection. These are emblematically singled out by the adoption of eerie lighting and coloration, suggestive of an unearthly blend of destructive napalm-fed fire and incongruously bucolic firefly glow.

This principle applies to even the wealthiest and seemingly most auteur-centered of studios. With Belladonna of Sadness, Grave of the Fireflies and Like the Clouds, Like the Wind, it is impossible to dissever the anime’s uniqueness from the cooperative effort channeled into them not solely by directors, illustrators, character designers and animation directors but also by the many more marginal members of their production crews. In flaunting with stunning experimental verve and inventiveness the status of adaptive anime as a cultural, ideological and artistic agency in its own right, the three films emphasize that no textual object is ever unequivocally monolithic.

Yet, it never vanished altogether from the scene, being channeled by some experimentative filmmakers into the visual and symbolic exploration of the societal anomie and uncertainty bred by the reality of postbubble Japan. In addition, Belladonna of Sadness is indebted to numerous musical modes, and particularly the soulful style of 1970s rock opera. This is clearly evinced by the opening segment, where the action focuses on the protagonists’ wedding ceremony and the local baron’s rape of Jeanne as the payment he exacts when the groom admits to not owning the required marriage tax.
