Special Actors

(スペシャルアクターズ)

 

 

Synopsis:

Japanese director Shinichiro Ueda is best known for One Cut of the Dead, a low-budget zombie comedy which became a huge box-office success. The comedy drama Special Actors is his second feature film and stars Kazuto Osawa and Hiroki Kono (Drama 30, Maō).

 

With his pasty complexion and ever-present stress toy, Kazuto (Osawa) is not a typical actor. He doesn’t look like anyone’s idea of a hero, yet he gets a chance to become one after a chance reunion with his younger brother Hiroki (Kono) who is now working for Special Actors, a talent agency with a difference. Rather than take on ordinary roles, these performers orchestrate the kind of elaborate ruses that, in any other film, would get them labelled as con artists. Soon Kazuto is signed up to rescue a family-run inn from the clutches of a religious cult.
