Japanese poster for Black Swan

Love this Japanese poster for Black Swan. Love it.

The colors, the staging: it's very minimalistic. Yet the pose, the feathers and even the Japanese script* lend just the right level of complication to the composition.

Want an even larger version? Here you go.

* I want to say "kanji," but Wikipedia tells me there's more going on in the Japanese writing system than that and I am nowhere near intelligent enough to figure it out on my own.
