Extra Info

Yuna is a female influencer with morals as flexible as yoga positions, ready to throw her principles under a truck for a quick buck. By giving her followers exactly what they (think they) want, she’s built an empire based on likes, donations and juicy contracts for different brands. But being successful and filthy rich can get tiring sometimes. So tonight at yet another launch for a cosmetics brand, she knocks back a couple of vodka shots and heads home early. But when she wakes up, her bed is a little bit harder than usual and the ceiling’s really low. And it’s dark. And it reeks of gasoline. A bit like a trunk of a car, actually. And when the car starts moving, her phone rings. On the other end of the line, a charming stranger unravels the program of the night: Yuna has until midnight to launch a live-stream from the trunk of the car and raise a million in cash on her channel. If she fails to do so, she’ll end up on the wrong side of an industrial grinder. Unfortunately, her followers seem to take the whole thing for a bad taste publicity stunt…
DRIVE has nothing to do with the eponymous Refn-Gosling pic, apart from the spectacular stunts at break-neck speed that is! For his first feature, Park Dong-hee wanted to make, in his own words, “a thriller at 200 km/h that never stops” and that’s exactly what you get, coming to a screeching halt after an exhilarating ride with a couple of devilish twists along the way!
