I think his dissastisfaction came from the fact that a lot of compromises
were made for the theatrical release. The novel (Beltochika's Children)
he wrote might have been closer to the version he wanted to make. In the
novel, Amuro was sleeping with Beltochika and the character Chien did not
exist. By the end of the story, Beltochika was pregnant with Amuro's child
(kinda opens a whole new can of worms instead of the clean cutoff CCA
offered, neh?)
