Dir: Ryûsuke Hamaguchi 2021 | 179 mins

Japanese with English subtitles.

Yusuke Kafuku ia a renowned stage actor and director. Two years after his wife’s unexpected death, he receives an offer to direct a production of Uncle Vanya at a theatre festival in Hiroshima. There, he meets Misaki Watari , a taciturn young woman assigned by the festival to chauffeur him in his beloved red Saab 900.

As the production’s premiere approaches, tensions mount amongst the cast and crew, not least between Yusuke and Koji Takatsuki, a handsome TV star who shares an unwelcome connection to Yusuke’s late wife.

Forced to confront painful truths raised from his past, Yusuke begins, with the help of his driver, to face the haunting mysteries his wife left behind.

A haunting road movie travelling a path of love, loss, acceptance, and peace.

Winner of three prizes at the 2021 Cannes Film Festival, including Best Screenplay.
