The Janjira Nuclear Power Plant that becomes a food source for the first incubating MUTO is initially portrayed as a mess of smoke-stacks and towers that loom over a quaint peninsula township, and is then portrayed as the centre of a crumbling ghost town after the MUTO takes residence, a ghost town with deliberate echoes of the empty post-Chernobyl town of Pripyat.

The original movie tries so hard to be thought-provoking in its dub, there is a sequence I can’t watch in English. They were new on the literary scene, at once ambitious to make their mark and dismissive of much of what had come before them.
