Review

Among recent Japanese films, the film shows great concentration and energy. Based on the original novel with the same title, the film’s major element is a dialogue between Sanada, a psychiatrist and Azusa who has trauma from fire. Azusa’s words sound like monodrama. The film starts with a scene of Sanada and Azusa meeting in an elevator. The scene is presented in variation, which resembles the complicated emotions of Azusa. The title means fire in Japanese. As fire doesn’t have any regular form, the film illustrates human in irregular ways. Fire also represents her pain, anger, and language. Through the unique structure of repeating the past and the present, director shows how difficult it is to understand someone. It is impossible to get close to her. (LEE Sang-yong)
