In the casting of this ecological drama? Ryo Noshikawa, Ryûki Kosaka And Ayaka Shibutani. The Japanese director Ryūsuke Hamaguchi collaborates again with the Japanese multi-instrumentalist and composer Eido Ishibashiwith whom he had worked on Drive my Car and the live concert Gift. The two creators draw on their specialties and reinvent the relationships between sound, image and narration.

Evil does not exist won the Silver Lion Grand Jury Prize at the 2023 Venice Film Festival. It will be released in theaters on April 10, 2024.
