Romance is a business. Family, friends, followers. All available for hire. A man is hired to impersonate the missing father of a twelve year old girl. Shot in Japan, with Japanese actors, in Japanese language, Oscar-nominated auteur Werner Herzog brings to screen a unique angle to the recurring theme of individuals chasing impossible dreams.
Yuichi Ishii, Mahiro Tamimoto
" A subtle and quintessentially Herzogian rhapsody "
" Amusing and disarming...it takes on a dimension you don't see coming "
The Hollywood Reporter
" A close cousin of Nicolas Cage's Bad Lieutenant...almost dystopian "
" Homosapiens are a strange species, and few capture that more satisfyingly than Herzog "
