The trivia item below may give away important plot points.

None of the main characters in the film have names. At least one of the characters never even reveals her face. In Buddhism, one of the goals of enlightenment is the extinction of the self. Basically, Buddhists abandon the idea of themselves as individuals, and see themselves as part of a whole. Only the non-Buddhist police officers who arrest Adult Monk have names.
