One of the great lost masterpieces of Japanese animation, BELLADONNA OF SADNESS unfolds as a series of spectacular still watercolor paintings that bleed and twist together. An innocent young woman, Jeanne is violently raped by the local lord on her wedding night. To take revenge, she makes a pact with the Devil who transforms her into a black-robed vision of madness and desire.
Beautiful and unique. i believe this was ahead of its time since it wasn't well received when the animation first came out but is better suited for today's viewers. Very different from the usual animated movies.
