Synopsis

In 2009, in the hallways of the Meliá hotel, a name could be heard, Nicolas Winding Refn’s, who with two movies in the running was then putting himself forward as a candidate for cult director, a motivator of contemporary genre films. 2011 arrived and Winding Refn proved that so much promise wasn’t in vain. With Ryan Gosling set up as a hero sparing in words and gestures, Drive gazes into the rear-view mirror towards a late seventies cinema full of cars, persecutions, action and excitement. With markedly retro aesthetics, Drive pays tribute to the past, to Walter Hill’s Driver; meanwhile, Winding Refn underpins the cinema of the future.

Director

Nicolas Winding Refn

Copenhagen, 1970. His taste for combining beauty and violence has made him one of the most relevant contemporary filmmakers, thanks to movies like Pusher (96), Valhalla Rising (09), Drive (11) or Only God Forgives (13). Last year he was awarded the Sitges Time Machine.
