A prohibited virtual reality game starts absorbing participants into its vortex. Qui will outlise Avalon ?

Mamoru Oshii probably is one of the most complex figures in Japanese History of film. Contemplative and brutal at the same time, his style shows a whole range of influences from European cinema of the 60s (Chris Marker, Andrzej Wajda...) to the standards of male animation for otakus. With Avalon, he gives shape to his philosophical and paramilitary fantasies, ads cyber- tech background, and gives birth to an intriguing, warlike yet zen poem.
