The Book of the DeadDVD
Brilliant animator Kihachiro Kawamoto brings this stop-motion tale to life with a visually stunning adventure! The film follows the introduction of Buddhism to the Japanese from the Chinese. A young Japanese woman believes she sees the Buddha in a vision,and travels to a temple in an act of religious deference. There, she encounters the vision again - in fact, that of a dead prince, not the Buddha. The prince mistakes the woman for the last person he saw before he died, and the two find themselves becoming closer as they each attempt to break through to the other's world.
