not sure what to expect from the movie other than knowing that this is where most of the influence that Quentin Tarantino used in making his Kill Bill series.
there is less action in this film but i think it's a good decision since sometimes restrained battles work because when there is so much anger seething thru the surface it becomes difficult to control and you lose focus towards your goal. it's obviously the restrained and cold-blooded accuracy that inspired the quote "Revenge is a dish best served cold."
what kind of person did revenge produce? the person unfortunately didn't have the opportunity to enjoy life since the person is said to be created specifically for that purpose to the extent that she is often reminded that she is "the child of the nether world", not always a positive reinforcement to a child but if you're training a kid to be a mercenary, nothing should be positive about reinforcement.
upon reaching adulthood, she has become a full-blooded monster bent on vengeance to the extent that she has lost capacity to feel fear ... or did she?
the really admirable thing about Meiko Kaji's performance is that while she's born and raised to be an avenger, she still doesn't forget that she is human. like when she stopped to listen to the children play - it made her feel bad about the childhood lost due to vengeance. chances are she might have fallen for the journalist too - [spoiler start]notice how she found difficulty in killing her subject because the journalist is in the way[spoiler end]
at the end of the day, while revenge is a dish best served cold, it also leaves a person empty inside out
clichéd at some parts but this is an entertaining film. just found out that it was based on the manga うさぎドロップ . the girl who played Rin is truly adorable
