A fraudulent composer once dubbed "Japan's Beethoven", but who was neither deaf nor especially musical, is set to star in a documentary film about his charade, a report said on Thursday. Mamoru Samuragochi rocketed to fame in the 1990s with classical compositions that provided the soundtrack to video games including Resident Evil, claiming then to have a degenerative condition that affected his hearing. His story proved irresistible for Japan's media, which lapped up the tale of a tortured genius battling a crippling condition to produce "Symphony No.1, Hiroshima", a mournful tribute to those killed in the 1945 atomic bombing of the city. In 2013 he was the subject of a major documentary aired by state broadcaster NHK, which showed the musician touring the tsunami-battered northeast of Japan to meet survivors and those who lost relatives in the 2011 catastrophe.
