Contrary to popular mis-conception, this is actually a girl movie. Check that. This is totally a girl movie. The concept for the filmís romance here was seen earlier in Jean-Luc Godardís Alphaville, the ending of which offers a more ambiguous and equally equally beautiful promise. Translation: If you liked the romance in Blade Runner, you should watch Alphaville and then buy Ghost in the Shell. Iím not going to say it again. One small point. The entire movie, the way I see it, you are waiting to hear what Rutger Hauer has seen. In just four years, what could he have possibly seen that is so special?
