Wheel of Fortune and Fantasy (M)

Wheel of Fortune and Fantasy movie poster

An emotionally resonant and beautifully therapeutic piece of cinema from the director of Academy Award winning film, Drive My Car.

Winner of the Silver Bear at the 2021 Berlinale.

An unexpected love triangle, a failed seduction trap and an encounter that results from a misunderstanding. Meiko is startled when she realizes that the man who her best friend starts to have feelings for, is her ex; Sasaki plots to trick his college professor out of revenge, using his class-friend-with-benefits Nao, while Natsuko encounters a woman who seems to be someone from her past, leading the two to confess the feelings they have harbored in their hearts - stories about the complexities of relationships, told through coincidences that happen in the lives of women in love.

Cast: Kotone Furukawa, Katsuki Mori, Fusako Urabe

Director: Ryusuke Hamaguchi
