Product Description

A lonesome college student named Jiro (Keisuke Koide) is spending his 20th birthday alone when suddenly a beautiful cyborg girl ( Haruka Ayase - Ichi/ Oppai Volleyball ) turns up. The few hours that he spends with her are the most incredible moments of his life and Jiro is overwhelmed by his good-fortune in meeting her. But his happiness does not last for long since she disappears after that. A year later on his 21st birthday, Jiro runs into her again. At least she looks the same, but this time she is somehow different. It is the beginning of a love that would change his life forever...

5.0 out of 5 stars Haruka Ayase the star of ICHI is an added bonus! 24 Sep 2009
By Steve
Format:DVD
SCREENED AT THE 2009 FANTASIA INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL: I'm more than a bit curious how "Cyborg She" was marketed in Japan. The festival plugged it as the new film by Kwak Jaw-young, and of a piece with his with his other whimsical romantic comedies with a touch of the fantastic. Which it is, and although it never loses sight of being romance first and sci-fi second, it makes sure not to short-change anybody.

22 November, 2008: As the film starts, Jiro Kitamura (Keisuke Koide) is buying himself a birthday present. A college student in Tokyo, he's got no family or close friends (his home village was destroyed in an earthquake, and the new town that has been built on its remains isn't home), and celebrates his birthday the same way every year. Except last year - that year, a beautiful girl (Haruka Ayase) showed up in a bodysuit out of sci-fi anime, shoplifted herself a new outfit, and sat herself down at Jiro's table, leading him on an adventure before announcing she was from the future and disappearing. This year, she shows up again, in even more dramatic fashion, taking superhuman action when a crazed gunman shows up in the restaurant. Afterward, she explains that Jiro created her sixty years in the future and sent her back in time to prevent his crippling. She's a blank slate now, but maybe living with him will help her develop a soul.

The trick to this movie is to get us to see Haruka Ayase's character as more than a mere machine, or else what's meant to be a romantic comedy can get creepy and pathetic, very quickly. The opening flashback (or, given the time-traveling nature of the film, flash-forward) helps; strongly implying that the cyborg will develop into something more.

4.0 out of 5 stars Do cyborgs dream of electric love? 29 Sep 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Cyborg She, well where does one start? Yet another purchase made on the back of overwhelmingly positive reviews. Thankfully, this one hit the mark for me. After reading the blurb (I mean, it's about some fella falling in love with a robot) I wasn't sure if i'd watch it with the wife; after all, i've seen enough Manga to know where this type of thing can lead...

In any event, it's actually a wonderfully meandering and gentle love story between one man and his cyborg girlfriend sent from the future to protect him from a yet unknown fate. Yer typical Brit rom-com really.

Our man Jiro is a harmless and pleasant loner whom spends his birthday alone each year, dining in the same restaurant; buying himself the same present; and eating the same meal. That is until the kooky lady from the future appears from nowhere and inveigles herself into his birthday celebrations and spices up his life for the evening. After that night they don't meet again for another year though this time she's a little more, er, kick-ass.

Cyborg She doesn't really fall into any particular genre as it blends together sci-fi, romance, comedy, college-drama, and action flick all in one. Though a lot is squeezed into the film, I found the most compelling element was the shifting dynamics between the pair's relationship as his feelings towards her grow with each day however the course of true love never runs smooth...

You could easily take the 100 minutes as a stand alone film in its own right but just when you think it's going to come to a predictable coda the director pulls it in an entirely new direction which really made me sit up. From there it's a psychadelic futuristic soma-induced tapestry which eventually ties-up the end with the start in an almost mobius manner.

Oh, and Haruka Ayase truly is a beautiful woman; worth the admission fee alone. That and the complex and rivetting plot of course. I mean, that would just be shallow wouldn't it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic - but don't let Hollywood near it... 21 Aug 2013
Format:DVD
As there are other excellent reviews of this film already on Amazon, I'll just add a few comments.

First, this is a classic Science Fiction film, with ideas a-plenty and enough of a changing story to keep you on your toes. OK, so there isn't a spaceship in sight, or aliens, but instead what we have is a nicely-plotted story with excellent performances from the two leads. Maybe, to be a bit critical, the story drags in the middle, but then things happen (I'll say no more) and off we go again - with some excellent make-up/special effects (understated but very nicely done and convincing as well). A bit cruel to Raoul, though.

Second, I think it would be most unlikely that a Hollywood remake would have the charm of this - maybe an independent film maker could have a go instead, and would probably (hopefully) give it the heart a corporate film company might lack. Maybe I've seen too many disappointing Hollywood films, especially remakes (War Of The Worlds, The Day The Earth Stood Still, etc), and am suitably cynical, but once you can get used to watching a film with subtitles the story just carries you along. Maybe you need to watch it a couple of times (or more) to get all the nuances, but it's not a chore, it's a pleasure. So, hands off Hollywood, don't do a Ring on this film. Stick to teenage chase/sex comedies with little plot/intelligence and lots of car chases and explosions, and we'll all be happy knowing exactly what we're going to get - and thus what to avoid!

Anyway, rant over. Cyborg She is a welcome addition to the list of quality time-travel films.
