Location: Redstone Theater

Dir. Ryūsuke Hamaguchi. Japan. 2021, 121 mins. DCP. In Japanese with English subtitles. With Kotone Furukawa, Ayumu Nakajima, Hyunri, Kiyohiko Shibukawa, Katsuki Mori, Shouma Kai, Fusako Urabe, Aoba Kawai. Acclaimed director Ryūsuke Hamaguchi (Drive My CarAsako I & II) returns with an enchanting triptych of stories of chance and imagination, spinning mundane encounters into a world of infinite possibilities. In the first, a young woman is startled when she realizes that her best friend’s new flame might be her ex; in the second, a disgruntled student plots an elaborate revenge on his college professor; and in the final story, a girl’s college reunion leads to an unanticipated run-in that awakens long dormant feelings. Bound together by memory, regret, deception, and fate, Hamaguchi’s film charts the ever-deepening mysteries of the human heart. A Film Movement release.
