Years later, he’s employed to direct a play in Hiroshima and assigned a chauffeur, a young woman named Misaki. During their long journeys together in Kafuku’s precious Saab 900, he begins to confront the mysteries of his wife that still haunt him. Hamaguchi’s engrossing adaptation of a Haruki Murakami story won the Best Screenplay prize at Cannes this year.
