DRIVE MY CAR — RYÛSUKE HAMAGUCHI IN CONVERSATION

508

 

The in-betweenness of melodrama is something I’m particularly fond of. It’s because it opens a margin for perspectives. One can feel the sadness of the tragedy; the other will cherish the laughter. For me, the foolishness of melodrama becomes its actual seriousness because it enables the filmmaker to grasp the essence of the time. — Ryûsuke Hamaguchi
