In his twentieth film, acclaimed Japanese director Kiyoshi Kurosawa (CURE, TOKYO SONATA) reinvents the alien movie as a unique and profoundly human tale of love and mystery. Three aliens travel to Earth on a reconnaissance mission in preparation for a mass invasion. Having taken possession of human bodies, the visitors rob the hosts of their essence—good, evil, property, family, belonging—leaving only hollow shells, which are all but unrecognizable to their loved ones. Equally hilarious, thrilling, and profound, BEFORE WE VANISH reminds audiences of the continued strength of one of Japanese cinema's most unique auteurs and the value of the human spirit.

“Part ghost story, goofy comedy, marital melodrama, rebel youth film, action movie and sci-fi—all immensely fun and impeccably made.” —Daniel Kasman, Mubi

“Mr. Kurosawa, a prolific and skilled genre master, spins this parable with a light, nimble touch, punctuating heavy passages of exposition with punchy, modest action sequences and snatches of incongruously bouncy music.” —A.O. Scott, New York Times
