ROBO-G Robot visits the Shinjuku Piccadilly Theater in Tokyo
A robot that appears in the Japanese movie ROBO-G is paraded outside the Shinjuku Piccadilly Theater in Tokyo. The Japanese film stars Mickey Curtis as an old codger grandfather who finds new life as an entertainer inside a robot suit. Things turn bizarre when a young female student falls in love with the robot. Japan’s premiere film director Shinobu Yaguchi is the director of ROBO-G. Kobayashi, Ota and Nagai (Gaku Hamada, Shogo Kawai and Junya Kawashima) are three low-ranking employees of Kimura Electric, who are ordered by the company president to develop a bipedal robot for an upcoming robot expo. With just one week to go before the big event, the prototype gets smashed to smithereens!
The desperate trio hatches an ingenious plan to disguise a human inside a robot suit, so they hold an audition to find a candidate who can fit perfectly inside the costume. They choose 73-year old Shigemitsu Suzuki (Shinjiro Igarashi), a lonely, retired office worker, but little do they know that grandpa Suzuki is a crackpot. And when a robot-crazy female college student, Yoko (Yuriko Yoshitaka), falls in love with the trio’s new creation, things really begin to go haywire.
