DIRECTOR: Kenji Uchida - JAPAN

“Kenji Uchida’s brilliantly entertaining comedy-drama is essentially a riff on Trading Places, but it takes the notion that we all play roles every day much further than John Landis ever dreamed. A failed actor, unlucky in love, steals the identity of an accident victim and finds himself prey to the attentions of the mob—he discovers that he’s now a famously ruthless fixer for the underworld. Meanwhile the actual fixer wakes in the hospital with amnesia and has to learn to live anew as a failed actor. Perhaps fortunately, a needy woman executive (having set herself a two-month deadline to get married) is on hand to help him and/or get in his way. Much of this is deliciously funny, not to mention brilliantly timed and acted with relish by the all-star cast.”—London Film Festival (128 mins.)

Filmography: A Stranger of Mine (05), After School (08)

Sponsored by the Consular Office of Japan in Portland.
