Professor Hershel Layton—renowned archaeologist, puzzle-solver, and extraordinary gentleman—and his young aspiring apprentice Luke Triton receive a mysterious letter from his former student Janice Quatlane containing tickets to an opera at the Crown Petone. They soon discover that it is no ordinary opera, but rather a devious game for the legendary Fountain of Youth—the giver of eternal life. However, this only scratches the surface of an unfolding mystery that the pair must solve together in order to survive.

Despite being faced with complex puzzles and fervent competition, Professor Layton and his trusted assistant Luke never forget to uphold the standards of true gentlemen... And a true gentleman never leaves a puzzle unsolved.

I also loved the way they presented ...

Layton Kyouju to Eien no Utahime, aka Professor Layton and the Eternal Diva, was my first flirty encounter of films from groups other than Ghibili. Since childhood I have been a passionate fan of the games, and I feel that passion came from the creators. The soundtrack of this film, the key focus, is perfect, inflicting nostalgia within each piece- that includes the original key score!
Nostalgia is nurtured inside the heart, ...

I loved every second of this movie!
I think I've watched this movie over 25 times already. I'm a big fan of Professor Layton and this was such a gift. Oh my god.

story 9
I actually want to give the story a 10/10 because it's such a good story. The mystery they had to solve was really fascinating and thrilling. The reason I gave it a 9 is because it was so hard to understand the first few times I was watching it. In the games, I usually got the story but the movie was a little hard to understand. Especially when I watched it when I ...
