Deserved. Hamaguchi is of the best rising Japanese directors working in Japanese cinema right now. His other film he released this year " Wheel of fantasy and fortune " is equally brilliant if not, better. I hope JT posters show some love to both the movies.

Very well done film and deserves all the praise it's getting. A bit too long for my short attention span though..lol.

US filmmakers have got no chance of any awards, give all the national awards to foreign films, makes perfect sense.

Nishijima is of course great, but without Tōko Miura, as the driver Misaki, playing brilliantly opposite in most scenes, this movie goes nowhere. Miura has captured the many Japanese women in their twenties, far from homes they cannot return to, somehow making it for themselves. She deserves a lot more credit. A+
