Utena movie

Hi, new here. I have a few questions about the movie. If Akio losing the keys to his car equals to his losing control over Anthy does that make Anthy the vehicle which allows Akio power to control Ohtori? That being so then by Utena's changing into a car and giving Anthy the key she is giving Anthy both a way in which to leave Ohtori and the power to decide if she will do so. Does that make sense emot-confused

Re: Utena movie

Oh boy oh boy!

I think, well if a car that goes nowhere is useless, and Akio can't find his keys, I think that's probably less that Anthy was his means to control and more that he's ignorant enough of the use of his own car as to lose them. He wasn't going to try to escape anyhow, and he seems fine with that until Anthy wakes up. At first he's like 'Eh whatever I take cabs.' and then freaks out looking for it when something's happened that's severe enough to make him want to escape. His idea of escaping is pretty broad, given that since he can't find the keys he's cool with murder/suicide.

Movie Akio sucks. emot-frown

That said, the lack of a key struck me as one of the many, many metaphors for his impotence that are in the movie. You know, like his tower literally being severed from its foundations. So there's like...that.

Also everyone keeps saying Anthy killed him. Maybe she took his keys.
