A esta vaina la consideran una especie de obra maestra ultra-profunda tan cargada de significado que se viola a GitS, Eden: It's an Endless World! y Serial Experiment Lain juntos.  Bueno les diré que eso no solo es una gran mentira, sino que esta "magistral " película es una de las cosas más sobrevaloradas del mundo del anime y el manga.   Para empezar los "simbolismos" son la cosa más ale... read more

Toda obra cinematográfica es capaz de reflejar las obsesiones y filosofía de los involucrados en cualquier departamento de la misma, y si hablamos de una cinta muy personal como El huevo del ángel... En todos estos. Desde el cuidado meticuloso en el simbolismo de Bergman, pasando por la metafísica y espiritualidad de Tarkovsky hasta el barroquismo en las imágenes de Fellini, todo englobado en... read more
View all Angel's Egg reviews
A young girl is the sole protector of a very precious, large egg. Her lair is near a large, abandoned, decaying gothic city inhabited by restless shadows. A mysterious young man arrives one day, and eventually wins her trust. They converse sparsely about obscure philosophical and theological topics, and she shows him some astonishing fossils and works of historic and scientific art.
Release date: 22 December 1985

“Toda obra cinematográfica es capaz de reflejar las obsesiones y filosofía de los involucrados en cualquier departamento de la misma, y si hablamos de una cinta muy personal como El huevo del ángel... En todos estos. Desde el cuidado meticuloso en el simbolismo de Bergman, pasando por la metafísica y espiritualidad de Tarkovsky hasta el barroquismo en las imágenes de Fellini, todo englobado en un misticismo y contemplación cristiana propio del cine europeo que fue clave para el desarrollo artístico de Oshii. Al final del día se trata de una cinta que construye su forma y posteriormente fondo en base a sus obsesiones, ya que la idea de la fe y esteticismo cristiano que han dominado la visión artística de Oshii se instalan permanentemente en el imaginario de la película con esos ca” read more

"de 5/10 para 6/10 Eu realmente não entendo quem gosta de Stalker mas não de angel egg, ambos se utilizam de elementos visuais para transmitir uma mensagem, no caso de Angel Egg é algo subjetivo, assim como Stalker."

" Date: 3/28/2021 Viewed: Youtube Re-Watch Note: If I had to pick a favorite anime from Mamoru Oshii, it would be Angel's Egg. Angel's Egg is a fantastic work of art and is truly one of a kind in my opinion. The animation is still fantastic even over 35 years later and the art direction from Yoshitaka Amano (Vampire Hunter D) is breathtaking. Every scene in Angel's Egg will make your jaw drop to the ground because it is a very stunning movie to look at. You also have a chilling music score tha"

My biggest disappointments in entertainment (142 tv items)

"And despite all that, Angel's Egg is not good either. It has all the positives I already mentioned earlier but there's no overall plot or characters in it. It's funny how opinions about something can change with time. When I first watched it in 2015 I was completely blown away by it, I rewatched it five years later and found it unbearable."

Sabes que eso denota que la obra es insustancial? Si dices que la obra es una experiencia personal, eso significa que ninguna explicación es autentica, porque no puedes sacar una conjetura de que est
