Evil Does Not Exist

Trailer Review

STARR · RHINEBECK

Opens June 7

When a luxury glamping company plans to encroach upon a rural hamlet of Tokyo, a simple wasabi harvester is caught between being their advisor and siding with his town. Director Ryûsuke Hamaguchi (Drive My Car) uses this story to examine the quiet and powerful prismatic human connections between business and community. (dir. Ryûsuke Hamaguchi, Japan, 2024, 106m)

It’s a complex drama, a realist film teetering on the edge of the uncanny, whose very title points the way towards the idea that there are shades of grey in every judgment we make.” —The Guardian
