This isn’t simply because of the film’s predominantly ‘90s setting or non-traditional parallel narrative.

The circumstances are as contrived as they are unbelievable, but regardless of their plausibility, it’s also a chink in the film’s romantic armor.

Without giving too much away, Kenji and Athena make the noble, arguably harder, decision.

But while there is no mistaking the sacrifice of both Kenji and Athena, there is also an alarming sense of disappointment to their love story.

In the play’s climactic end, seconds are all that separate tragedy from triumph.

Had Juliet woken up seconds sooner, or had Romeo arrived seconds later, maybe Shakespeare’s classic love story wouldn’t have ended in tragedy.
