All eyes are on Utena Tenjou, a mysterious transfer student to Ohtori Academy. But Utena's eyes seem to be fixed on one familiar face that stands out among the rest—Touga Kiryuu, Utena's childhood friend. Touga knows of Utena's past and possesses knowledge of the Mark of the Rose, a set of unique rings worn by those who compete for the hand of the Rose Bride. The Rose Bride, Himemiya Anthy, belongs to whomever wins her in a duel, and the one that wins all the duels is said to be given the power to bring revolution to the world. Utena is drawn into the duels, but Touga and their complicated history together may end up unraveling everything. Nothing is as it seems in this retelling of the original anime series.

No matter their genre, whether they are animated or live-action, short or feature, films can serve many purposes:

4. Some express social and political ideas.
5. Some bring into question the human condition.

And some don’t seem to make any sense. Might be because of a confusing and hard-to-follow storyline, because the reference material is hardly accessible, or because the creator wants to mess with his audience, or all three and more. Does Adolescence of Utena belong here? I’d say yes and no.

Mixed Feelings
The film starts off playing mostly on the strengths of the TV series, being the bold use of abstract but metaphorically clear storytelling and dramatic abstract visuals to enhance it. Even as the story meanders a bit, it deals with some aspects of characters and themes not explored in the original show but that work well to form a natural thematic sequel, particularly all the intrigue involving Tougou, which builds to a strong climax.
However, the last leg of the film, about the last 20 minutes or so, finds itself unable to resolve any remaining thematic tension points and devolves into a convoluted mess of forced, ...

... no.

This movie is much worse than the anime. I think I get what they were going for. This is an anime about Utena likely being in high school. Similar to the old anime, she's trapped in a fairy tale role of trying to be a prince. Though this one is much more insulting.

Characters: the actual worst part about this movie. The only characters who stay good, are Anthy and Utena. The rest of them suffer. Touga is one note good guy. Miki is implied bad, but ultimately ends as one note good. Juri is one ...
