Drive My Car


Hamaguchi Ryusuke’s speech: (Calling all the cast and crew who attended the ceremony up to the stage) There are many cast and crew members who could not be here. Thanks to their contributions, we were able to make Drive My Car. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Mr. Murakami Haruki for giving us the original story, a wonderful story. Of course, the power of the producers and crew made it possible, but especially, what I would like to take this opportunity to praise the cast. We have Nishijima Hidetoshi and Okada Masaki here with us today. But there are also Miura Toko, Kirishima Reika, Park Yu-rim, Jin Dae-yeon, Ahn Hwitae, Perry Dizon, and so many other actors from Asia. I believe that we are here today because they broughttruly believable emotions to the screen. I personally believe in the simple principle that if an actor is really feeling something, the audience can also feel it. I hope that we can continue to make this happen in the future. I think we did a very good job, of course, but I look forward to working with this team again to achieve even more. I also hope to have the opportunity to work with all of you who are here now in the future. Thank you again so much.
