New Trailer and Poster for Ryûsuke Hamaguchi’s WHEEL OF FORTUNE AND FANTASY

Wheel of Fortune and Fantasy
First look at the award winning anthology.

Winner of the Silver Bear jury prize at this year's Berlin Film Festival, writer/director Ryûsuke Hamaguchi’s Wheel of Fortune and Fantasy spins three stories set in Tokyo - A model learns a friend is dating her ex, whom she still has feelings for; a student attempts to frame his professor for sexual misconduct after suffering a humiliation at his hands; and two middle-aged form a connection.

Kotone Furukawa, Ayumu Nakajima, Hyunri, Kiyohiko Shibukawa, Katsuki Mori, Shouma Kai, Fusako Urabe and Aoba Kawai star.

Wheel of Fortune and Fantasy opens at New York's Film Forum on October 15th. A UK/ROI release has yet to be announced.

Check out the trailer and poster below.




The official synopsis reads:

In this evocative meditation — three taut stories set in Tokyo about the mysteries and depths of women’s desires — coincidence seems as natural as the passing of time, and both are depicted in equal measure as whimsical and sharp: A fashion model discovers her friend is dating the ex who may have been her true love; a college student attempts to avenge humiliation by enlisting his lover to lure his sadistic professor into a “Me Too” situation; two middle-aged women make a poignant, enigmatic connection. Hamaguchi homes in on deceptively simple moments, finely sketched to reveal the strangeness of true intimacy — unexpected, palpable, fleeting.
