* AfterTheEnd: A strange example, but the world is clearly empty and dying [[spoiler: due to God abandoning it in despair]].
* AnimalMotifs: There's much imagery relating to birds and fish.



* GothicPunk: The film's general aesthetic.



* LeFilmArtistique: Often considered to be an art film, and it definitely has hallmarks of this trope such as the lack of dialogue, the slow, static shots, and the surreal, mostly symbolic story.



* OurGhostsAreDifferent: The fishermen appear to be the ghosts of the city's former inhabitants. This may be the case with the fish shadows and the statues on the spaceship as well.



* TakenForGranite: The man says that [[spoiler: everyone in Noah's Ark, which they are on, turned to stone. The fishermen might be part of it.]]
* WorldOfSymbolism: Arguably the point of the movie.

* TakenForGranite: The man says that [[spoiler: everyone in Noah's Ark, which they are on, turned to stone. The fishermen might be part of it. This also happens to the girl after her death.]]
* WorldOfSymbolism: Arguably the point of the movie. There's tons of Christian symbolism, both overt and subtle, throughout the film.

''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]].
