JAP | 2021 | dir. Ryûsuke Hamaguchi, with Hidetoshi Nishijima, Tōko Miura, Masaki Okada

A take of Haruki Murakami’s eponymous short story, Drive My Car is a road movie sui generis that travels paths of loneliness, loss, and bereavement, and investigates the deepest meaning of artistic representation and theatre as a universal key to understanding human nature. Yusuke Kafuku (Hidetoshi Nishijima), a successful stage actor and director accepts an offer to direct Chekov’s Uncle Vanya at a theatre festival and drives to Hiroshima in his immaculate, flaming red Saab 900. At his destination, having to comply with the strict festival rules, he will have to let Misaki Watari (Toko Miura), a taciturn young woman and a very skilled chauffeur, drive his car.
