Over the years I’ve seen so many posters of ‘Cyborg She’ around. It has even been recommended to me. Still it has taken me ages to watch it! Mainly because I don’t like watching sad movies and the poster looks like there’s some kind of impending tragedy.
I mean look at it! She is a cyborg. He looks in love – how is this going to have a happy ending?
At least that is what it looks like to me. I couldn’t finish that Kame drama with Ayase Haruka either because I thought the credits made it look like they were going to die in the end! (I don’t think they did!).
Plot in a nutshell: Man meets a robot!
Anyway with regards to Cyborg She! I LOVED this movie. I think it had just the right amounts of everything I could want. The beginning was cute, got a bit twisty, there’s time travel, love, great actors e.t.c.
I really was not in the mood for crying either but this movie makes you want to cry too (maybe shed some happy tears too). I found out the director/writer is the same guy who wrote My Sassy Girl, which would explain why it felt like a Korean movie and was a blubfest at times. It’s definitely not a sad movie though!
The leading actor is Keisuke Koide. He’s one of those actors who seems to just blend into every character he is! I think I have seen him in so many things but I never recognize him. Every time I start remembering who he is and where I first saw him, my mind boggles!!! He’s Masumi in Nodame Cantabile!!!
Our leading lady is Ayase Haruka and I have loved everything I’ve seen her in. Every time I watch her, I always think ‘now this girl really act!’.
Anyway if you’re looking for a nice sweet movie to watch on a Sunday evening, try Cyborg She!
