Tenshi no tamago (Angel’s Egg)(Egg of God) (1985)

It features very little spoken dialogue. Its sparse plot and visual style have led to it being described as “animated art rather than a story”.

An unnamed young girl, carrying a large egg, wanders about a surreal, nightmarish post-apocalyptic world collecting water in glass bottles.

A man (also nameless), carrying a cross over his shoulder, crosses her path and begins to follow her around during her daily routine.

Despite her worries for her beloved egg (the contents of which she refuses to tell him), she eventually grows to trust him, even though his intentions remain mysterious.

Angel's Egg

We need more modern anime content creators to take stylistic risks like this.

These images stick with you.

O goddess-born of great Anchises' line, The gates of hell are open night and day; Smooth the descent, and easy is the way: But to return, and view the cheerful skies, In this the task and mighty labor lies. To few great Jupiter imparts this grace, And those of shining worth and heav'nly race. Betwixt those regions and our upper light, Deep forests and impenetrable night
