Casshern (?love-hate?)

Casshern is based on on an anime series from 1973.It is Japanese film, therefore I watched it with subtitles

Movie watching Rule: You know when a movie has you hooked when you forget that you are reading subtitles.

The acting in the movie was very good, as for almost all the characters had their moments of overwhelming passion pour onto the screen. Only 10 minutes into the film, and my bf and I were already teary eyed.

It is a story that takes place somewhere in the future.In a post apocalyptic society where pollution and war have destroyed most of the earth. A young man  is chosen by fate to fight against the neo-saphiens. The neo-saphiens are indiviuals that were created by accident in a lab. From there, the story continues with fight sequences, and an anti-war plot that reveals the horrors of violence and hatred.

This movie does a very good job of intertwining the ideas of fate, afterlife,love and science. This is a movie that has substance, and is a  bit melodramatic but of course all movies tend to be just a tad melodramatic.

The conclusion

Emotions have a powerful influence on decisions that one makes, and a person has to be able to find the balance.

The contrast between love and hate is  dangerously blurred  because ultimatley  they require the same amount of passion to fuel both emotions.

My question is ..

IF love and hate  can both fuel a person with a passion ?

Is it possible to live without hatred as much as it is to live without love?
