Audience Reviews for Train Man: Densha Otoko

  • Jan 07, 2010
    A fair romantic movie that begins on a train. The best part of the film is the communicating via the web in a chat room about the lead character's exploits and travails, and the interaction he has with his fellow online chatters. I loved the ending when those other online chatters are truly affected by the train man and venture 'outside' their wired world. Charming movie!

    A friend recommended I see this movie and I really enjoyed this film. You always want to pull for the underdog and in this case you experience the frustrations of the main character to the point you really want to throw something at the screen. You become lost in his world and in the end you can't help but cheer for him. I highly recommend this movie.

    [font=Century Gothic]In "Train Man," a shy young man(Takayuki Yamada) intervenes to help stop the harassment of women on a train by a drunken businessman. Afterwards, one of the victims, a young woman(Miki Nakatani), sends him a nice set of cups as a thank you gift. He calls her to say thanks and asks her out to dinner, to which she says yes. Buoyed by the advice of his online friends, he undergoes a drastic makeover in preparation for their date...[/font] [font=Century Gothic][/font] [font=Century Gothic]"Train Man" is a sweet romantic movie that is neither vulgar nor condescending. Its central message of getting a life is ironically aimed at people who already have a life in the vibrant world of cyberspace. Granted it may not seem like a terribly attractive one to some, but it is still a valid one, even if most of one's friends are online.(For example, the three gameplayers enjoy playing video games together, so what's wrong with that?) The movie's definition of a successful life is narrowly defined as heterosexual romance. And identifying yourself only by how others see you is quite misguided. But I did like how courage is defined here.[/font]

    Based on the book that was based on a true story. Train Man is possibly the most modern of all love stories. Told in a brilliant fashion as a young man searches for the courage to pursue love. He is supported by fellow internet users, who give advice and cheer him on. Little does he know the effect he is having on those who support him. Brilliant comical moments and a fresh romantic narrative make this a sweet and enjoyable film. The book is suprisingly well transferred to film and a number of new techniques bring along the communication via messageboards and text messages. Slows down towards the end but a great ride.
