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)
