Hamaguchi (Drive My Car) spins three tales of chance meetings and the mysteries of desire: an unexpected love triangle, a failed seduction and an encounter with the past. “The geometry of desire is elegantly plotted in Wheel of Fortune and Fantasy, a wistful, moving, outwardly unassuming movie. [It] is a perfect entry point into Hamaguchi’s work. [B]oth times I watched this movie, I found something to admire, consider, argue with and weep over.” (Manohla Dargis, NY Times

“Full of understated, melancholy poetry. Hamaguchi’s intimate snapshots of middle-class angst are unusually humane by the standards of modern cinema, frequently invoking Eric Rohmer’s warmly indulgent depictions of Parisian bourgeois ennui. Emotionally authentic and consistently absorbing.” (The Hollywood Reporter)
