Character of film
Psychology of the characterVis-a-vis this change of era, Motoko, which one attends the birth in the first scene of film 1. A cyborg with a ghost: its alive part, its heart, the infinitesimal one which attaches it to humanity. Undoubtedly that which pushes it to raise questions about its existence, with its heart of woman and its synthetic body. Both are hated however but there too cohabit. Motoko is also a phantom with its way, haunted constantly by these questions: does the conscience determine the name of life? From which do its memories, its personality come? What is it is intrinsic with humanity, beyond the conscience to exist? Motoko seeks its alive part, but side of the human ones does not find it.
How not to forget that Motoko is with half machine, equipped with an human brain. Its human brain makes of it human, its body, a machine. Where is it located itself? … Sensuality emerges from it at the same time as of the coldness and the distance. Film 1 returns its inhuman side to the face of way almost sadistic in the scene of the self-mutilation.
Of share its functions, it often has to make decisions difficult and fast, with the result that it often seems hard and almost inhuman. However, all the members of its team dedicate a honesty to him and a confidence without fault because it is somebody of sure and determined.
It has known very young person its transformation cybernetic, which undoubtedly explains its permanent research of the humanity which remains in it, having its body primarily artificial, alone its brain remaining human.

ImpressionBeyond the purely psychological aspect of the character, Motoko Kusanagi instinctively touches us by his impossible search of a humanity, or an answer to its condition. Its glance itself is confusing: beautiful, disconcerting and yet curiously empties and inexpressive, one feels lost in a swirl of contradictory emotions, such pity, the desire for protecting, sadness but also a certain admiration.
