In this altogether delightful triptych of stories, director Ryûsuke Hamaguchi (Happy Hour); proves he’s one of contemporary cinema’s most agile dramatists of modern love and obsession.

“This trio of stories is elegant and amusing, with a delicacy of touch and real imaginative warmth.” – Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian 

Whether charting the surprise revelation of a blossoming love triangle, a young couple’s revenge plot against an older teacher gone awry, or a case of mistaken romantic identity, Hamaguchi details the sudden reversals, power shifts, and role-playing that define relationships new and old. Playfully inspired by life’s tiny miracles, Wheel of Fortune and Fantasy is both ironic and tender, a lively and intricately woven work of imagination that questions whether fate or our own vanities decide our destinies. (Dir. by Ryusuke Hamaguchi, 2021, Japan, in Japanese with English subtitles, 121 mins., Not Rated)
