Evil Does Not Exist

Ryusuke Hamaguchi , 2023 (106m)

Evil Does Not Exist

In an idyllic rural Japanese village, Takumi and his daughter Hana live a quiet life. Takumi makes a modest living from the surrounding land, but is always determined to keep everything pristine. However, that balance is disrupted when a company proposes building a new ‘glamping’ site for tourists - something Takumi believes will have disastrous consequences. Ryûsuke Hamaguchi follows up the Oscar-winning Drive My Car with this engrossing eco-parable. Restrained and often surprising, the film also represents the remarkable results of Hamaguchi’s continued collaborations with composer Eiko Ishibashi.
