Comment from Writer, Director, and Star Kaori Momoi
The protagonist in Fuminori Nakamura's original story "火 Hee" does nothing but talk, without any descriptions. It's a groundbreaking work. At first, producer Kazuyoshi Okuyama offered me the lead role. Soon after that, he asked "It could work well if you also directed it, don't you think?" Compared to the courage of Fuminori Nakamura and Kazuyoshi Okuyama, me taking on the project wasn't of great significance, but I was keenly aware that I had to reciprocate their courage.
The lead female character is an arsonist without any sense of guilt. She can only be regarded as a woman whose judgement has been warped. Yet somehow, there's a realness in the words she speaks. She tries to live through connecting with whomever she can. I feel that in a way she's symbolic of the current age. That's the kind of person I wanted to depict and portray.
