  • Drama, Documentary, World Cinema
  • 1h 29m

Werner Herzog travels to Japan for his latest film, a subtle reinvention of his unique style of direct documentary filmmaking. His co-conspirator and star is Yuichi Ishii, the real-life CEO of Family Romance LLC, a company that rents out human surrogates for his clients’ every need - a family member for a social event, someone to take the blame for a mistake at work, a stranger to help you relive the best moment of your life. The interaction of performance, artifice and genuine emotional depth makes a profound and fascinating film.
