LOS ANGELES — Japan’s “Drive My Car” won best non-English language film at the 79th Golden Globe Awards on Sunday.
The movie, starring Hidetoshi Nishijima, is based on a short novel by Haruki Murakami and directed by Ryusuke Hamaguchi, 43. It is about a theater director who is tormented by grief after the sudden death of his wife and how he overcomes it.
The film won best screenplay at the 74th Cannes Film Festival last July, the first such award given to a Japanese movie, and also won four awards — best picture, director, screenplay and actor — at the 56th U.S. National Society of Film Critics Award.
This year’s Golden Globe Awards ceremony was held without spectators or live TV broadcast, and the winners were announced on the host’s website and elsewhere.
