An interesting marriage of anime and electronic music

Interstella 5555 was directed by Leiji Matsumoto and set to the music of Daft Punk's Discovery album. The film tells the story of the abduction and rescue of an interstellar pop band. One of the most fascinating things about this film is the fact that the story is simply told through the animation, music, and minimal sound effects; there is absolutely no dialogue in the film. However, the story is told effectively without dialogue, and the viewer can understand what's happening.

The DVD has a few special features on it: interactive play, character files, animation editing for "Digital Love," an interactive game, karaoke versions of three songs, the trailer for the film, and biographies of Leiji Matsumoto and Daft Punk.

Overall, Interstella 5555 is an incredible viewing experience. I would highly recommend this film to anime fans, regardless of whether or not they are fans of Daft Punk.
