  1. olikim's rating of the film Family Romance, LLC

    what is authentic and what is performative in our world? I love Herzog as I love watching Marker (as I love reading Fried and Pippin) he is my type He asks really big and deep questions, but do it in such an "authentic" (for the lack of a better word) way

  3. kburia's rating of the film Family Romance, LLC

    The simplicity in the films narration starts off as something very ordinary or mundane slowly taking you to a plane that leaves you with something very profound, perhaps a new perspective towards emotions that define relationships. I could not resist watching it twice back to back !

  4. Gustavo Adolfo Carbonell's rating of the film Family Romance, LLC

    Gran trabajo de Herzog!. Es ficción o documental? Eso no no importa. Es cine, recursivo y explorador.

  5. ioancora's rating of the film Family Romance, LLC

    Best cinema in years. This story about solitude and lying is like the beginning of a new philosophy.

  6. Tao Takashi's rating of the film Family Romance, LLC

    La película es mala, además de estar muy mal filmada. El tema es interesante, y la libertad con que el director trata el japón, instructiva. Pero no ha sabido ver, no es tan fácil, se muestra un Japón inventado y antinatural, falso.

  7. Nisa Hüma Türk's rating of the film Family Romance, LLC

    Bu tarzda izlediğim ilk filmdi. Oyunculuklar o kadar içten oynamış, yönetmen o kadar iyi çekmiş ki neredeyse her sahnede kendime bunun bir kurgu olduğunu hatırlatmak zorunda kaldım.

  8. Santiago Delgado's rating of the film Family Romance, LLC

    The camera work is outstanding! Specially when the woman asks him to move out to them. Also, the conflict and concern about making people happy by this kind of services and then realizing that you can be a victim as well, is very interesting and scary. If something fake evokes authentic happiness, is this happiness empty or worthless ?

  9. Werther's rating of the film Family Romance, LLC

    Excelente visión de una sociedad donde a través de esta película no sólo se hace local sino se puede entender universalmente ya que todo los humanos a veces necesitamos una mentira para poder seguir por el verdadero camino

  10. Carlos alberto Ramírez Martínez's rating of the film Family Romance, LLC

    It’s the meaning of this film what’s delights me the most, an enormous sense of solitude. And as Herzog said “this business about love...it’s not only Japan”

    kalau cintaaaaa sudah direkayasaaaah

  12. PatrickCliff's rating of the film Family Romance, LLC

    I mean, I don't even know where to start. I got no idea, how this movie got a 8.9 rating. Bad editing with random zoom-ins, camera was a mess with a mix of drone shots and what seemed like handy-camera footage, the acting was bad, especially from the main character, and the screenplay was less of a story than a loosely knit rope of events. Really - don't watch this movie.

  13. georgeslesite's rating of the film Family Romance, LLC

    I remain stunned. What an incredible movie and what a great human being, Herzog. Travelling deep in the human psyche. Touching and immensely moving portrait.

  14. Volkan's rating of the film Family Romance, LLC

    I loved it! 5 / 5 As always the case with Herzog, it is a film about art, performance and truth. And again, as always, it is an invitation to reflect upon our own subjectivities. *The robot-fish in the film is the epitome of this film. *one cannot miss the reference to Seven Samurai *Herzog at the beginning and at the end of the film, in the so called Q&A session - those scenes are part of the film!

  15. Mr.Pacha's rating of the film Family Romance, LLC

  16. Xiang Li's rating of the film Family Romance, LLC

    I love how Herzog approach such an enormous topic like existential solitude via simplicity and authenticity. The peaceful story-telling and cinematography magnified the very subtle emotions in the feature - the final effect is powerful and reflects the beauty of sorrow. Just as Herzog said in the intro ‘everything is fake but the emotions are real’, Family Romance LLC trapped me in an ocean of empathy.

  17. rodrigodemirjian's rating of the film Family Romance, LLC

    Admiro mucho este director pero esta película me parece muy mala. La verdad que la termine de ver pero me costo bastante

  18. Silke Neryn's rating of the film Family Romance, LLC

    It's not surprising that the best fiction film Herzog has directed in years could also be mistaken for one of his documentaries. This is clearly where he's comfortable now, and where he should remain.

  19. littlecicero's rating of the film Family Romance, LLC

    RENT for £10? You must be joking. I got a hyped up link to watch it free, which never worked, and now I have the consolation prize to RENT it, for the price of BUYING any other film. Stick to BFI Player. It’s £5 a month, no contract, no hype.

  20. Victor's rating of the film Family Romance, LLC

    Herzog siendo Herzog en su forma más bella.

  21. Father Isaiah the Sixth's rating of the film Family Romance, LLC

    "At Family Romance, we aren't allowed to love, or to be loved" A quiet and meditative film, Family Romance LLC brilliantly uses a faux-documentary style of film-making to chronicle the work of a 'fake person salesman'. It's intentionally slipshod style perfectly fits the subject matter resulting in stilted dialogue and awkward conversations that's highly entertaining to watch.

  22. Luis B's rating of the film Family Romance, LLC

    Mesmerizing! A true show of the storytelling craftsmanship of a mature director.

  23. mbelmarw's rating of the film Family Romance, LLC

    Increíble reflejo de la sociedad actual y la soledad, un viaje mágico entre la realidad dentro de la ficcion.

  24. Paco Oestreich Simoni's rating of the film Family Romance, LLC

    "How much of our own lives is performative"? Beautiful. I find the notion of family romance - along with many of the other Japanese phenomenon explored throughout the film - very interesting, and a big moral question. The film leaves the audience forging their own subjective opinion as to whether it is moral or not. I cried a lot.
