Question: Why didn't Mani kill the healers daughter? When everyone was preparing to hunt the beast, they look at each other and then she kisses two guys that are right beside her. She was responsible for the fight where everyone was attacking Mani before it was stopped by Jean Francois, and later in the lair of the beast she helped the men kill Mani. It was obvious that she was evil so why didn't he kill her?

Chosen answer: She wasn't really evil. The whole movie is a metaphor for the shockingly bloody French revolution. The fact that (at least towards the beginning) the beast usually only kills women and children is a nod in the direction of the countless innocent (women and children) who were put to death in its course. The healer's daughter is sort of an omnibus of the French peasants' lust for blood. She's not evil, she's just crazy - the mad child of revolution. Sorry for the lengthy explanation, but if one goes into it without knowing, it can be a bit confusing.

Question: Is the weapon used in the final battle inspired by Ivy's weapon used in the video game Soul Caliber (or just coincidence)? And how in the world is it supposed to work?

Chosen answer: Actually the origins of the Bone Sword used by Francios date back much earlier than Miss Ivy. It is rumored to be a mytholigical weapon used by the damned in some ancient African beliefs. Crafted from the bones of the dead and the chains of Hell itself. Ivy's weapon and so many others like it are a representation of a magical weapon that springs forth to lash out at an opponent. It can't be crafted. Believe me I've tried.
