Wheel of Fortune and Fantasy

2h 1m Drama 2021

2021 Berlinale Film Festival Winner: Silver Bear Grand Jury Prize

Appearances deceive, actions lie, and people are not who they seem to be in another alternately playful, comedic, and cynical delight from the director of DRIVE MY CAR.

Meiko realizes that her best friend’s new flame might just be her ex; Sasaki is a disgruntled student who plots to trick his college professor using his friend Nao as bait and Natsuko encounters a woman who seems to be someone from her past…

Sleek, stylish and well worth a spin. Hamaguchi Ryūsuke’s wonderfully beguiling WHEEL OF FORTUNE AND FANTASY explores the unpredictable nature of everyday life, the complexities of relationships, and the coincidences that disrupt our lives and loves.
