En français

パーフェクトブルー is an animation movie in the psychological thriller style by 今 敏 (Satoshi Kon) released in 1997. 今 敏 also directed パプリカ (Paprika) and 千年女優 (Millennium Actress). The screen play was written by 村井 さだゆき (Vampire princess Miyu TV, Cowboy bebop) adapted from a novel by Yoshikazu Takeuchi.

Mima is a young idol singing in a girl trio. She decides to quit the group at the high pick of success to become an actress in a TV drama. Incident starts to happen around her menacing her life and the life of her coworkers. At the same time a web site describing the life of the "real" Mima makes her feel followed.

I discovered this movie years ago during a special manga night at the local cinema. I watched it several times and every time I discover something new. I like the music by Masahiro Ikumi which adds a lot to the oppression feeling of the movie.
