Urusei Yatsura 2 : Beautiful Dreamer
Director_ Oshii Mamoru
Japan 1984 98min 35mm color feature Animation
Review

This film is based on the original serial cartoon by Takahasi Rumiko, published for nearly ten years from 1978 until 1987. It has been made into more than 200 TV series and 6 theatrical versions and thus it has a wide range of fans not only in Japan but around the world. It has also brought fame to director Oshii Mamoru, a leading figure in Japan animation along with director Miyazaki Hayao. In comparison to other works by director Oshii Mamoru who has made ‘animations like actuality film’ and ‘actuality film like animations’, this animation, a love comedy set in a chaotic high school with its various characters making havoc, has some an old-fashioned theme and visual sensibility, however it ‘makes everyday streets and stores suddenly appear to be new’, ‘goes back and forth from reality to dream’ and ‘arises more questions about existence’, with its desolate city views, it predicts the unique world of director Oshii Mamoru, making this a monumental animation along with Nausica of the Valley of the Wind, made in the same year.
