In Doppelgänger, a tense supernatural thriller, meek scientist Michio Hayasaki (Koji Yakusho) comes face to face with his own doppelgänger. He is initially able to ignore him, but the look-a-like becomes more and more insistent, until Hayasaki has no choice but to confront him. Despite being physically identical, they are frighteningly opposite in nature where Hayasaki is quiet and reserved, the new arrival is confident, aggressive
and unbound by social conventions. The two learn to co-exist until Hayasakis life suddenly leaps into a downward spiral. Starring Koji Yakusho (The Eel, Shall We Dance), Doppelgänger explores the duality of nature and the conflict that arises when we cannot come to terms with both sides of our personalities.
