Storyline

Masuo is a hapless salaryman: squat, homely, with receding hairline and few social graces. He lives with his parents and looks older than he is. He has masturbatory fantasies about Anko, a schoolgirl who rides the same train as he. Pictures of her fill his wall. His sister and her boyfriend encourage him to tell Anko how he feels; otherwise, they say, he's a stalker and a pervert. Masuo puts a transmitter in a teddy bear and contrives to give it to Anko along with a note. Now that he has ceased to be anonymous, how will he handle her response? Is the film an examination of a culture's tolerance for older male fantasy and younger female passivity or just the story of one loser? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

A Vulgar Movie
3 November 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A man has unhealthy obsession about a high school girl and stalks her. You get to see one of a kind worst behavior from this man throughout the entire movie.

The fail of this movie is that the guy is not interesting, but just vulgar. This kills the intrigue of this movie immediately. I've seen Simon Yam ( a very famous Hong Kong actor) play a maniac that's infatuated with a girl, but he never appeared vulgar which is a testament to his great talent as an actor. Unfortunately, no such talent pool was visible in this movie for the actor, director, and the screen writer.

Classy movies were scarce between 2001 - 2005, and this movie seems to falls in this category.

I ended up watching this movie, but it was one of the few movies I've regretted seeing.

Not recommended by any means, and best stay away from it.
