Movie Review: Groper Train: Wedding Capriccio (1984)

Directed by Yojiro Takita

Starring Yukijiro Hotaru, Yoshima Kai and Matsubara

Reviewed By Kenny B.

Pink Eiga Films gave us this softcore comedy/mystery about a detective trying to find a rich industrialists daughter while his assistant tries to avoid an arranged marriage by hooking up with a rich but eccentric composer who likes to compose symphonies on his Casio calculator. Both the composer and the detective happen to share the same hobby, groping women on the subway. In an amazing coincidence the composer also turns out to be the son of the industrialist. Meanwhile,the daughter turns up dead and the detective has to now find her killer. Kuroda, the detective, is like an inspector Clouseau type, but the comedy here is very much on the weak side. In fact, there's not much of a comedy o rmystery in this comedy/mystery. From what I am lead to believe the Groper Train series was pretty popular in Japan, inspired by all the real-life groping that was going on at the time.

There were a few watchable scenes in this movie, one of them involved Kuroda, who is on the train searching for the lost daughter. The only clue he has to go on is the fact that the missing daughter has a diamond filling in her back tooth so the only logical thing for him to do is go from girl to girl, finger banging them to orgasm and then quickly looking in their mouths for the diamond. The groping scenes were pretty decent, slightly arousing but due mostly in part to the fact that they got some pretty hot Japanese girls to do the scenes. So thank you for that director Takita, it was appreciated.

Overall, it was a rediculous, weird, cheesy, Asian softcore porn flick that really doesn't stand out from the rest of its kind in too many ways. It did have that unique retro 80's look and feel to it though, so I am sure there are people out there who would like it. And like I said, the girls were pretty hot and there were a lot of close-up scenes of hands in crotches and moaning and groaning like only those Asian girls can do, so it wasn't a total loss here. A pretty high perv-factor without being too obscene, I would of rated it a lot higher had the attempt at comedy not been so poor. Who knows, maybe its a cultural thing, maybe the comedy was there and I just didn't see it.

Either way, I am giving it a 4.5 out of 10
