Two Japanese Guys Reenact Alfred Hitchcock’s Entire Career in Introductory ‘Hitchcock’ Trailer

Japanese Hitchcock

America has treated us to a few different ways to commemorate the life and career of the great Alfred Hitchcock. There was HBO’s The Girl, an interesting take on the unparalleled filmmaker. Then there was the Fox Searchlight picture Hitchcock, which was your average biopic movie. But the greatest yet has got to come from Japan: in the below video, an intro for the country’s release of Hitchcock, two Japanese actors give their rendition of the Psycho, Vertigo, and Rear Window director’s long and varied résumé and personal history. And it’s wonderful.

No matter what language you speak, the comedy in the duo’s performance is loud and clear. As the first actor maintains a deadpan stature throughout the sketch as Hitchcock himself, his partner goes ape as the variety of characters leading the film maker’s movies. Check out the glorious trailer below for the best Hitchcock story we’ve seen in years:

Staff editor Michael Arbeiter’s natural state of being can best be described as “mild panic attack.” His earliest memories of growing up in Queens, New York, involve nighttime conversations with a voice from his bedroom wall (the jury’s still out on what that was all about) and a love for classic television that spawned from the very first time he was allowed to watch “The Munsters.” Attending college at SUNY Binghamton, a 20-year-old Michael learned two things: that he could center his future on this love for TV and movies, and that dragons never actually existed — he was kind of late in the game on that one.
