46-okunen no koi (Takashi Miike, 2006) aka Big Bang Love, Juvenile A
Big Bang Love, Juvenile A (Takashi Miike, 2006)
Miike's unpredictability continues in this meditative, homoerotic, Brechtian prison mystery. The allegoric symbols of the pyramid, representing to path to heaven and Ariyoshi's faith in an afterlife, the rocket, which represents Kazuki's faith in science and the path to space rather than heaven, and the butterfly, symbolizing metamorphosis. The choice between heaven and space is interesting because it results in hell to be life on Earth.
