|Review||GENJI MONOGATARI (Asahi Video Library),107 mins
Respectful and fairly faithful, if abridged, adaptation of the Japanese classic novel by Murasaki Shibiki. The animation is rather static and this looks like a low budget production. In short, rather sleep-inducing, but at least it proves that some art anime videos like this get made. And this is one Japanese-language video for which the English text should not be hard to find! The video is now released in the USA (subtitled)
