YesAsia Editorial Description

When the city goes to sleep, he goes to work in the kitchen. Does he have any customers? More than you think...

After three hit seasons, the late night television drama adaptation of Abe Yaro's manga series hits the silver screen with its first feature film. Following the show's original concept, Midnight Diner is a slice-of-life drama about the owner (Kobayashi Kaoru) of a late-night Shinjuku alleyway restaurant and the stories of his customers. Directed by series regular Matsuoka Joji (Tokyo Tower: Mom and Me, and Sometimes Dad), the ensemble drama follows several characters who frequent the neighborhood hangout: a money-obsessed woman who finds love with a geeky salesman, a homeless young woman who takes refuge as the owner's new assistant cook, a man who comes to Tokyo from Fukushima to find the volunteer that he's fallen for and a mystery urn that's been left at the diner. In the spirit of the television drama, Midnight Diner is a gentle, moving and sometimes dryly amusing drama about the little stories in the big city known as Tokyo.

Midnight Diner is masterful Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
'Midnight Diner' essentially is the cinematic version of a short story collection, with four intertwining plots all revolving around the misfits and oddballs who satisfy their midnight food cravings at the Master's late-night diner.

The Master (Kobayashi Kaoru), the diner's owner and chef, is a mysterious figure, tall and bleak in appearance, with a long scar running down the left side of his worn face. His attempts to stay out of people's affairs inevitably fail, as he is regarded as a father/authority figure by his regular diners, who form a kind of informal family.

The movie features four primary stories: (1) the pampered mistress (Takaoka Saki) of a well-heeled business executive, after the death of the businessman, seeks shelter in the arms of a lonely salesman (Emoto Tokio), (2) a young woman (Tabe Mikako) from Niigata fleeing entanglements there becomes a temporary assistant to the Master, but those old entanglements seek to draw her back home, (3) a woman (Kikuchi Akiko) who offered volunteer help to the survivors of the Fukushima tsunami finds that a man (Tsutsui Michitaka) she aided has developed an obsessive love for her, and (4) in a wraparound story, an anonymous burial urn has been surreptitiously dropped off in the diner and the Master wrestles with what to do with it.

Each of the stories becomes engrossing, as do the colorful characters who frequent the cramped confines of the Master's diner. I'm so glad that there is a second film in this series I can watch because I hate to leave this little world behind. BTW, if you enjoyed this movie, I strongly recommend that you also check out director Matsuoka Joji's splendid earlier film 'Tokyo Tower: Mom and Me, and Sometimes Dad'.
