Mushi-Shi - The Movie

SKU: 0704400051081

Legendary anime director Katsuhiro Otomo (AKIRA, STEAMBOY) makes his second foray into the world of live-action with this stunning fantasy film based on a manga by Yuki Urushibara. MUSHI-SHI (which was also made into an anime television series) follows a shaman named Ginko (Jo Odagiri) as he wanders feudal Japan healing people afflicted with "mushi," insect-like creatures that burrow their way into human bodies and cause mysterious illnesses. Otomo underscores the film’s supernatural elements--which borrow heavily from traditional Asian mythology--with a slow, contemplative tone and beautifully shot cinematography of the lush Japanese countryside.
