A Science Fiction
/ Romance film based on the 1995 novel of the same name
This film provides examples of:
- Chewing the Scenery: The last scene is when everyone just starts not only chewing the scenery but devouring it.
- The Film of the Book: Sadly, an example of What Could Have Been.
- Man on Fire: Toshiaki in the final scenes, although it becomes unintentionally hilarious as the actor can't match his reactions to the CGI fire consuming him. At all.
- Special Effects Failure: The fire is even awfully designed for its day, not appearing anything like fire or flames actually look. Even contemporary music videos were better at depicting CGI fire at the time.
