Synopsis

In this unique epic adventure, the lines between the past and the present, and truth and fiction, are blurred when a documentary filmmaker fulfills his quest to find the legendary actress Chiyoko Fujiwara and learn why she mysteriously vanished at the height of her brilliant career. When Chiyoko grants the filmmaker's request for an interview, he, in turn, presents her with a token -a key she had lost and thought was gone forever. The filmmaker could not have imagined that the key would not only unlock the long-held secrets of Chiyoko's life... but also his own.

Leading anime artist and filmmaker Satoshi Kon ("Perfect Blue") creates a blend of fantasy and reality in "Millennium Actress."
