2004 NR

Aspiring comic-book artist Angela (Chloé Winkel) leaves Europe to take a hostess gig at a Tokyo nightclub and is quickly seduced by Japanese culture. But when her predecessor at the club suddenly vanishes, Angela adds "detective" to her job description. Angela's manga-style drawings come to life in vivid anime sequences throughout director Matthias X. Oberg's stylish mystery, which also features gorgeous photography by Michael Mieke.
