CAST ME IF YOU CAN Directed By Atsushi Ogata
Japan | 2010 | 97 min
Urbane wit and sharp showbiz observations fuel this breezy, stylish romantic comedy from Atsushi Ogata (Eternally Yours, MVFF 2007). Hiroshi is an actor with an identity crisis. A perpetual supporting player, he is often mistaken for his TV bit parts — cop, crossing guard — wherever he goes. It doesn’t help that he lives in the shadow of his father, a best-selling author. When he meets an aspiring actress and blithe spirit with a perpetually buoyant outlook, Hiroshi is rocked from his hangdog reality as a series of surprising “plot points” lead him to unexpected highs and lows.
