Japan 2021


Two years after his wife’s death, Yusuke Kafuku receives an offer to direct a play at a theater festival in Hiroshima. There, he meets Misaki, a reserved young woman assigned to be his chauffeur. As they spend time together, Kafuku starts to confront the mystery of his wife that quietly haunts him.

Sneaks up on you, lulling you in with visuals that are as straightforward as the narrative is complex.

Manohla Dargis, New York Times

A tender and empathetic look from the Oscar-nominated director

Joanna Krygier, Filmweb

The film is subtle, woven with understatements, and at the same time very precise. Original, but not weird. Melancholic and soothing at the same time.

Paweł Mossakowski, Kultura Liberalna

Drive My Car devastates and comforts through its vehicular poetry of the sorrow from which we run, the collisions that awaken us, and the healing gained from every bump in the road.
