Such a long time since last post >_<

And I've in my possession a lovely Arthur Rackham book for almost a year now and have not introduced yet, i will do so soon. There is also something else particular i would love to share✰

Film recommendations

"Belladonna of Sadness"/ "哀しみのベラドンナ"
Director: Eiichi Yamamoto, year: 1973


The beautiful peasant woman Jeanne is raped by a demonic overlord on her wedding night. Spurned by her husband, she has no outlet for her awakened libido, which develops to give her powers of witchcraft. Experimental watercolor animation style based on Medieval European witchcraft legends and illustrations. (source)

*note* Jeanne deserves a post full of captured moments of her * this film may be considered graphic for people who has not been in the world for an adequately lengthy amount of time...

"The Fall"
Director: Tarsem Singh, year: 2006

summary: In a hospital on the outskirts of 1920s Los Angeles, an injured stuntman begins to tell a fellow patient, a little girl with a broken arm, a fantastical story about 5 mythical heroes. Thanks to his fractured state of mind and her vivid imagination, the line between fiction and reality starts to blur as the tale advances. (source: imbd)

"The Last Unicorn"
Original (!!!!) Author: Peter S. Beagle, Directors: Jules Bass, Arthur Rankin Jnr., year: 1982
summary: About a Unicorn who comes across the possibility that she may be the last of her kind, and sets out on a journey.
"...and she was not longer the careless colour of sea foam, but the colour of snow on a moonlit night....and she still moved like a shadow on the seas" *incredibly geeky excerpt i remembered from the original book which i recommend every should read instead...*

("The little mermaid" (Russian vers.))
Director: Vladimir Bychkov , year: 1976

summary: A lovely, haunting film reminiscent of the Czech film, THREE NUTS FOR CINDERELLA, RUSALOCHKA is a relatively faithful adaptation of Andersen's tale, "The Little Mermaid." In this film, the mermaid does not have to give up her voice to the sea hag, but she does exchange her blue hair for legs. (source: imbd)

*note* i first watched this unsubbed on youtube, which is actually not a big hindrance to enjoyment since whenever she speaks a bell tinkles....!!!
