(Boku no kanojo wa saibogu)
Celebrating his 20th birthday alone at a restaurant, Jiro, a shy university student, is approached by a cute girl and spends an unforgettable evening with her before she vanishes. A year later the girl reappears but Jiro notices some changes–particularly her superhuman strength and robotic behavior. Korean director Kwak Jae-Yong (My Sassy Girl, 2001) teams up with a Japanese cast and crew in this sci-fi romantic comedy that pays homage to Terminator, Back to the Future and Doraemon, Japan’s most beloved manga.
2008, 120 min., 35mm. Directed by Kwak Jae-Yong. With Haruka Ayase and Keisuke Koide.
