Butterfly from empty shell
She flutters briefly
Erika Sawajiri (沢尻エリカ) stars as the our heroin ;) LILICO*
She emerges from her cocoon of bandages at an elite plastic surgery clinic & rapidly rises to be THE ‘IT’ face in Japan.
Trouble, of course must find her in the form of debt to her shady & controlling manager for all her costly operations and small black marks appearing on her skin, a result of the experimental, illegal & all too temporary modifications performed by the clinic.
Fair Warning: This is a Fight Club situation (arguably worse) where the original work was a great idea roughly sketched out which the filmmakers then crafted into a finished piece of art.
In the manga & most translations her name is spelled 'Ririko' or 'Liliko', but I prefer 'LiliCo' because of the reference to a company. She is a business w/ many shareholders invested in her expecting a large return.
