In a loose retelling of the Revolutionary Girl Utena TV series, Utena Tenjou arrives at Ohtori Academy, only to be immediately swept up in a series of duels for the hand of her classmate Anthy Himemiya and the power she supposedly holds. At the same time, Utena reunites with Touga Kiryuu, a friend from her childhood who seems to know the secrets behind the duels. Utena must discover those secrets for herself, before the power that rules Ohtori claims her and her friends, new and old.

Adolescence of Utena is a feature-length movie that was produced and directed by the same persons who were responsible for the TV series. It premiered in 1999, and has been licensed Stateside by Central Park Media, which is now defunct. Let's just say it's been out for a long time Stateside.

Adolescence of Utena is best described as the TV series retold in two hours or less with different plot elements bought up or discarded, with some characters absent, and lots and lots of symbolism and, some would argue, a heavy dose of crack.

I would highly suggest watching the series going into read more

There's one thing you should keep in mind when watching Adolescence Apocalypse: absolutely EVERYTHING is a metaphor, usually for some part of adolescence. This is a movie that was made to be analyzed. Usually I don't analyze the symbolism of anything I watch, but Adolescence Apocalypse makes analyzing symbolism fun, crazy as that may sound. As for as anime symbolism goes, Adolescence Apocalypse can't be beat, even by the series.

That's not to say the symbolism's the only thing worth watching the movie for. Every moment of screentime is purely entertaining, whether symbolism is the focus or not. The only real complaint I had with the read more

Recommendations

This recommendation is more based on a gut feeling than anything else. The Adolescence of Utena and End of Eva are both retellings of their respective series and in both cases the intense imagery coupled with a complex and heavily symbolical atmosphere create an utterly surreal environment that deconstructs itself at every turn. They share the same epic quality even as they delve deep into the human psyche, despite the fact that the plot may seem to vary considerably. In these movies the role of the individual in the world and the very nature of what these two entities may be is what truly is at stake.
Both are filled with strongly symbolic and/or disturbing imagery.
The difference is the art style. Utena is pure eye-candy, while Angel's Egg is like a mixture between the gothic and the surreal.
