''Angel's Egg'' (''Tenshi No Tamago'' in Japanese) is a surreal 1985 animated film which was directed by Creator/MamoruOshii and featured art designs by Creator/YoshitakaAmano. The film centers around a young girl protecting an egg in an abandoned gothic city who meets a mysterious man with a [[CreepyCoolCrosses cross-shaped]] rifle. The rest is... [[TrueArtIsIncomprehensible a bit harder to describe]], but it's [[TakeOurWordForIt extremely beautiful nonetheless]].
