Wed 18 Mar 20:30 NFT3
USA 2019. Dir Werner Herzog. With Yuichi Ishii, Mahiro Tanimoto. 89min. Digital. EST. Cert tbc. Courtesy of Modern Films Intrigued by the story of a Japanese company that, for a fee, can supply people to imitate absent family members, Werner Herzog flew to Tokyo and filmed this scripted series of moments in the life of Family Romance, LLC. In an uncanny bit of re-re-enactment, the company's founder Yuichi Ishii plays himself, as the man who performs multiple impersonations a day to fulfil people's wishes. This includes passing as the estranged father of a 12-year-old girl, suddenly resurfacing in her life and dedicating time and attention to her. Amusing and disturbing in equal measure, Herzog's film questions the bizarre nature of the social systems that we put in place to deal with our random existence and probes our blurry relationships to truth and love.
