    Duelle

    ★★★

    Duelle is a film about two mysterious and fantastical beings, the Daughter of the Sun and the Daughter of the Moon, as they attempt to find a magical stone that will allow one of them to live on the Earth forever. A brother and sister, uncovering their plot as it becomes more sinister, must figure out a way to out maneuver them without losing their lives. Sounds exciting, huh?

However, this is easily one of my favorites that the studio has released and one of their most ambitious, unique, and creative films of their highly regarded catalog. It's both outrageously fun and horrendously sad (a key component to the theme of the film). I'm glad to see the studio producing films like this again. It comes highly recommended.
