Cerita romansa antara guru dan murid sudah banyak diproduksi seperti misalnya Daydream Nation (2010) atau My Little Bride (2004). Dan Narratage tidak menyuguhkan sesuatu yang spesial, bahkan terlalu membosankan untuk genre-nya. Film ini bercerita dengan tempo yang sangat lambat, seperti halnya film-film drama Jepang era 1980-an dan 1990-an. Hampir tiap shot-nya memiliki durasi yang cukup lama. Struktur ceritanya pun tidak beraturan, kadang mengecoh penonton karena alurnya yang tiba-tiba berubah atau berganti setting waktu tanpa ada penegasan dalam membedakan antara alur sekarang dan flashback. Apalagi para tokoh utama tidak memiliki perubahan penampilan yang cukup signifikan dalam rentang waktu 2 tahun cerita filmnya.

Fokus cerita memang pada tokoh Izumi dan perasaannya terhadap sang guru. Namun, konflik kedua tokoh utamanya tidak mampu digali lebih dalam dan chemistry antar mereka kurang terjalin dengan baik. Konflik disekitar mereka tampak hanya sebatas menjadi tambahan untuk mengulur waktu. Tak ada kesan mendalam dan seolah tokoh pendukung hanya berperan seperti cameo yang hanya lewat dan terlupakan dengan segera. Narratage mencoba menuturkan kisah romansa dengan gaya klasik, namun sayangnya tidak dibekali dengan cerita yang cukup berkesan untuk dinikmati, terutama oleh penonton era modern.

Excerpted from a best-selling novel titled "Narataju" by Shimamoto River, Narratage novel drama directed by Isao Yukisada. The film stars Jun Matsumoto, Kasumi Arimura, Kentaro Sakaguchi, Mikako Ichikawa and Koji Seto. The focus of the story is on the character Izumi and his feelings towards the teacher. However, the conflicts of the two main characters are not able to deepen and the chemistry between them is less well established. The conflicts around them seem to be limited to being extra to save time. There is no deep impression and as if the supporting figures only played like a cameo that just passes and is forgotten immediately. Narratage tries to tell the story of the novel in the classic style, but unfortunately it is not equipped with a story that is memorable enough to be enjoyed, especially by modern-day audiences.
