About The Third Murder

Not rated
Year Released:

Winner of six Japanese Academy Prize awards, The Third Murder is the latest from revered director Hirokazu Kore-eda. The film, a gritty mystery drama, marks a dramatic shift in tone, but also allows for Kore-eda’s trademark humanism to shine through. Leading attorney Shigemori takes on the defense of murder-robbery suspect Misumi, who served jail time for another murder 30 years ago. Shigemori’s chances of winning the case seem low—his client freely admits his guilt, despite facing the death penalty if he is convicted. As Shigemori digs deeper into the case and hears the testimonies of the victim’s family and Misumi himself, the once confident Shigemori begins to doubt whether his client is the murderer after all. The Hollywood Reporter called the film a “complex and engrossing examination of the truth.” In Japanese with English subtitles.
