The Book of the Dead
Set in 8th century Japan when Buddhism was a fledgling idea being introduced from China, this epic animated parable chronicles the adventures of a cosseted young noblewoman who risks everything to follow the ghost of a long-dead prince. While she mistakes the apparition for Buddha, the restless specter mistakes her for the last woman he saw before he died, setting the stage for a supernatural romance of sorts.
