Ryusuke Hamaguchi's "Drive My Car" is not your average road movie, instead taking viewers on a poignant three-hour journey into the psyches of two characters haunted by the past.

The Japanese arthouse film based on a short story of the same name by Haruki Murakami won the Oscar for best international film on Sunday, crowning a run of top accolades and rave reviews.

It also earned nominations for best picture, best adapted screenplay and best director for Hamaguchi.

In a brief speech, Hamaguchi thanked the Academy -- and was almost played off stage before saying "just a moment" and continuing to thank both the actors in attendance and those who could not travel to Los Angeles.
