<<People say I'm a  bit of a chameleon. Every day I must play many different roles. My business is called Family Romance.>> The protagonist of Werner Herzog's new, destabilizing film turns family love into a profitable business. The film, entirely shot in Japan, stages the vicissitudes of a man hired to impersonate the father of a twelve-year-old girl. A film about human relationships,social networks and the blurred line between reality and fiction. An experimental work that blew the audience of the last Cannes Film Festival away.
