At the very end, you see her open her mouth to reveal a 14th bullet, then a flashback to the Doctor putting it in her mouth with his. However, when she first wakes up from her "death" she gasps for air and her mouth is wide open. If there was a bullet in her mouth she would have choked on it. Of course, she could have taken one from the clip of the first guy she killed, but you don't see that, and there would be no reason for the flashback. See more »
I'm a little surprised because I see a lot of bad critics. I don't think you absolutely have to be a fan of Japanese gore movies to enjoy this excellent film. This is strange, gore, disturbing, ugly and violent. However it's also a deep, beautiful and captivating tale about vengeance but also and especially about humanity, compassion, and union. To me the whole point of the story is how two human beings can be bound by hatred, pain and emptiness and feed their relationship with violence and blood. It shows that love is not the only feeling that's able ton bring people together, dark feelings can also lead to a relation that's again more subtil, interesting and strong. Besides my interpretation of the relation ship between the two characters, I loved the ambiance, the filming techniques that make the film looks older than it is and create a unique estheticism, the amazing actors (especially mayumi and the mean guy) The uncluttered settings are also very elaborated and well thought to fit this plot which by the way seem very deja vu, basic and clumsy; however don't trust the synopsis which make everything seem simpler that it really is : the story is deep and full of facets, there are a hundred ways to interpret and appreciate Gun Woman. It has to be seen
