After the screenplay prize at Cannes and the Oscar for best international film for “Drive My Car”, the Japanese director Ryusuke Hamaguchi returns with “Tales of chance and other fantasies”. Meet.
Akira Kurosawa is stronger than Akira Hamaguchi! With his four nominations for “Drive My Car”, Ryusuke Hamaguchi made history as the most nominated Japanese director at the Oscars – he walked away with the award for best international film. Although “Drive My Car”, is a magnificent film, such a plebiscite seems surprising, considering that Ozu, Kitano and Imamura have never received one.
