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.

Audience Reviews for Revolutionary Girl Utena: The Movie

½

A very unusual and different take on the TV series, but with better visuals and a more convoluted plot, it's a much more interesting way to look at the property.

A beautifully rendered summarization of the gorgeous anime series of the same name, this movie does not dissapoint fans of the series or manga. With the student council members of Ohtori academy suffering from sexual miscommunication, unrequited dreams, and being forced to duel for the courtship of the schools' headmasters' daughters' boyfriends' sister(sorry that sounded sort of confusing) not a dry moment exists in this outstanding piece of cinema. But please note: IF YOU HAVE NOT SEEN THE SERIES, READ THE MANGA, OR EVEN HEARD OF REVOLUTIONARY GIRL UTENA, THEN YOU PROBABLY WILL NOT LIKE THE MOVIE, so please read into this series before watching the movie to fully understand its meta-physical adolescence allegory or you will probably get lost in it!

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.
