The story is told through the eyes of Yuichi, a teenage boy in love with pop music and pop stars. Particularly beholden to Yuichi is the ethereal star Lily Chou Chou, the subject of her own website where a loyal coterie of 'Lilyphiles' trade gossip, information, and speculation. Yuichi takes increasing solace in her fictional world, gradually using it as a weapon with which to fight his crippling shyness and the harsh realities of the outside world.

Apart from an atmospheric soundtrack and beautiful cinematography 'All about Lily Chou-Chou' has little to offer. Somewhere buried within the confusing plot is a rather dull story about bullying intercut with onscreen internet chat room dialogue from a group of fans pretentiously discussing the merits of a fictional pop star named 'Lili Chou-Chou', and at nearly two and a half hours long it's excruciatingly tedious viewing. If you're into art-house film then you may find something in it to like, otherwise I would give it a miss.
