This engaging documentary takes us straight into the beating heart of a film studio, right behind the scenes of making a samurai drama. Or at least that appears to be the case.
There’s interviews with the cast and crew, clips on location – it all looks very real, but is in fact not.
“Extro” is a skilfully made mockumentary that focuses on everyday people who want to take part in the magic of filmmaking.
Full of warmth and humour Naoki Murahashi’s debut is a heartfelt salute to the countless extras that help bring every movie set to life and make it believable.
