It is so common we see our famous films within Japan are unpopular outside, now. On the other hand, it is also often we have nameless movies well-known overseas.


The animated film released in 2004; “Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence” could be the example. That is a world-wide animated movie which has released in many countries, although we Japanese seldom know.

It is sure you have heard Cannes Film Festival that is an annual film festival held in France. “Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence” was released at the films competition as the first amongst Japanese animated movies. It has also run in United States of America, United Kingdom, Australia, Korea, Italy and others, not only France and Japan.

The film is a sci-fi sequel to the film “Ghost in the Shell” released in 1995. Have you ever seen the movie “Matrix?” That was created paying homage to “Ghost in the Shell.” If you enjoyed that, you could also have fun with the series.


Utilizing camera mapping, the 2D screens make us feel deep as 3D. “Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence” is full of their will and efforts to get to the frontier of Japanese animated works.

You’d better not expect too much of its scenario, because that was directed and written by Oshii Mamoru who said “I have no trouble to be a scriptwriter since I know the template for writing.” One of the themes is the doll. Presto imaging technique and skillful acoustic technique actively appeal its unique viewpoint.

“Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence” was produced by the two. One of the two is Suzuki Toshio renowned as a producer of Studio Ghibli. Probably because of him, its DVD commercial used a Japanese actress; Miyazaki Aoi completely unrelated to the film. His producing way tends to have us kind of confused with using big names strangely.
