Doppelganger - Movie Synopsis & Plot
Acclaimed Japanese director Kiyoshi Kurosawa (KAIRO, CURE, SÉANCE, CHARISMA) delves into the supernatural and the unexplainable once again with DOPPELGANGER, starring veteran actor Koji Yakusho who plays Michio Hayasaki, a meek scientist who seldom deals with life head on. His life is turned upside down when he comes across a man who is the spitting image of him. But emotionally, they have nothing in common. The doppelganger is frighteningly opposite to him in nature - where Michio is quiet and reserved, the new arrival is confident, aggressive and unbound by social conventions. The two egos learn to co-exist until Michio's life starts heading into a downward spiral.
