Our take

Ryusuke Hamaguchi may have won the Oscar© for Drive My Car, but his other feature of 2021 is every bit as wonderful. An erotically-charged anthology film that took the Silver Bear in Berlin, these three tales of fate and desire unfold with singularly compelling delicacy and emotional openness.
