Movie Info

Based on the Japanese animated series of the same name, Revolutionary Girl Utena involves the plight of Utena into womanhood through fighting techniques and other physical drama. Sexual tension arises between Utena -- the girl who wants to become a prince -- and her friend Anthy, whose character is a more extroverted version of the way she appears in the series. Surreal and moody, the film depicts the strange entanglements of characters Tonga, Akio, and others, and its dream-like ending exceeds any comprehensible expectations. For the American version, English dubbing was supervised by the film's original director.more

Audience Reviews for Revolutionary Girl Utena: The Movie

She turns into a racecar in the end. No, really.

Super Reviewer

This movie is a confusing series of images. The writer explained that he wanted to do something different than the series...I was just confused. The animation is great though.

Heather Nyara

Convoluted storyline and not in line with the original series at all. And the Utena "car" at the end is just weird. But the art is gorgeous. Worth a view if you liked the original Utena series (even though the plots are different), though probably a skip for everyone else.
