View Full Version : I few questions about Jin-Roh (Spoiler)
16-07-2003, 10:34 PM
Well the other day I went to EB and saw Jin-Roh for sale. I didn't even know that it was out in Australia. Anyway I must say that it was quite an enjoyable movie. But I have a few questions.
1. What does Jin-Roh mean???
2. In the Little Red Riding Hood story, what did the "Path of Needles" and the "Path of Pin" bit mean? What would have happened if Little Red Riding Hood took the other path???
3. Did Fuse kill Kei in the end or did the sniper kill her???
4. At what point did the Wolf Brigade's counter-intelligent plan kick in? Was it before or after the death of Red Riding Hood? If it's before does that mean that Fuse and the Wolf Brigade wanted her to die???

3. Fuse did.
4. I forget - it was complicated :heh:

3. If you want proof, you'll notice that after you hear the gunshot, smoke comes up from the closeup on Fuse and Kei. That proves that he fired the gun. I actually thought it was the sniper the first time I saw it. It makes more since that it was Fuse considering the final line in the anime.
4. I believe it was before, and The Sect may or may not have wanted to kill her. Fuse certainly hesitated, and the counter-terrorists not knowing who Fuse actually was would have left the death of the girl as an advantage to the terrorists. It is reasonable to say The Sect could have wanted Fuse to kill her so he could gain more trust with their enemy. Losing one mere ally is worth raising another to a height of gaining the enemy's trust thus opening an attempt for deception purposes I suppose.

For number three, It was kind of appropriate for him to pull the trigger since the whole mess started with him not shooting the bomber. And a 'happy ending' was very unlikely. Though in a way, they were both wolves.

another thing for number three is that u see the sniper release the hammer to his gun meaning he didn't fire
In the original Story of Little Red Riding Hood/The Grandmother's Tale (many of the versions were rewriten in Frence during the 1700s...) the story was a slightly more complete with little bits added here and there... like the choice of paths... breaking the strew which blocks the door... eating granny's flesh... taking of her cloths... burning her cloths... having to go relieve herself (wolf asks her to do it in the bed... but she goes outside...) there are verions she escapes... she dosent... and others where a lumberjack/huntsman save the girl and granny...
There are many interpritations to what the needles/pins stands for but most believe it is ment to symbolise the girls addolecence as when a girl learns to sew (France... back in the 1700s...) the good young girl would take the innocent path of needled... (in some verions of the tale the girl collects needles on the way...)
In the early tale the wolf was called a bzou... which is a kind of werewolf...
