I saw a preview for this on another DVD and it looked eerie enough for me to rent.  I was decent but not great.  The best thing was the song Ballad by Inoue Marina in episode three.

Le Portrait de Petit Cossette (コゼットの肖像 Kozetto no Shouzou) is a Manga and Anime series created by Asuka Katsura. The original 2 volume manga was published in 2004. The English manga is published by TOKYOPOP.

The original 3 episode OVA series ran in 2004 and was produced by Aniplex. This anime was licensed for North American distribution by Geneon and released as "Le Portrait de Petite Cossette", correcting the grammatical error in the French title, but leaving the typo and syntax mistakes, since the correct French is actually "Le portrait de la petite Cosette".

Fuse TV has broadcasted the anime as part of their Anime Explosion Weekend, December 15th, 2007.

The anime is about art student Eiri Kurahashi, who works in an antique shop. One day, he sees the image of a girl in an antique glass. To his shock, she appears to be moving and living out her life before his eyes. He becomes infatuated with the girl, and one night at midnight, somehow makes contact with her. He learns her name is Cossette, and that she was an aristocrat's daughter during the 18th century.

She reveals to him that her spirit has been entrapped within the glass by her murder, which was perpetrated by her betrothed, the artist Marcelo Orlando. To set her free, she tells Eiri, a man must be willing to take upon himself punishment for the sins Marcelo committed.

As the series progresses, Eiri is tortured mentally and physically by Cossette, who demands that he prove his professed love for her. It is revealed that Eiri is the reincarnation of Marcelo, and that Cossette is becoming as infatuated with him as he is with her. Also depicted are the efforts of the women in Eiri's life - relatives, friends and mentors, and the obligatory girl-next-door love interest - to free him from what is becoming increasingly obvious to them as a self-destructive path.
