Product Description

For kids around the world, music is often the only salvation when the pain and anxiety of teenage life becomes too much to bear. Yuichi (Hayato Ichihara) is in the 8th grade and he worships Lily Chou-Chou, a Bjork-like chanteuse whose epic music is lush and transcendent. Yuichi only lives for Lily Chou-Chou's big Tokyo concert, where the lies and violence can be washed away by the presence of his goddess and her powerful music. But fate has yet another obstacle in store for Lily's devoted fan.

Bonus features include a Making-Of Featurette and essay by Stephen Cremin (deputy director NYAFF).

Much of All About Lily Chou-Chou is mesmerizing: some of its plaintiveness could make you weep. - Elvis Mitchell, The New York Times

A sprawling and adventurous tale of teen alienation... you absolutely can't miss it. - Andrew O'Hehir, Salon

It's a uniquely lonely film, and one of the year's most memorable. --Michael Atkinson, Village Voice

Iwai's movie is a remarkable, acutely involving one, working on an emotional level that can only really be expressed through music. - Derek Elley, Variety

One of the most haunting, viciously honest coming-of-age films in recent memory. - Ernest Hardy, LA Weekly

Iwai creates Yuichi's world as much through disembodied moments of sight and sound as through action, building to a surprising stab of melancholy. Rating: A- --Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly
