The Third Murder

Third Murder, The (Sandome no Satsujin)

 Director: Hirokazu Kore-eda

CAST: Masaharu Fukuyama, Koji Yakusho, Suzu Hirose

FILM INFO:

125 minutes, Japan, 2017, 15A

When a factory owner turns up dead, employee and ex-convict Misumi confesses to the killing. Misumi’s legal team – led by accomplished lawyer Shigemori – turns their focus to helping their client avoid the death penalty. However, not everything about the case adds up, and the situation gets more complicated as Misumi’s own story gradually starts to change…

 

Although director Hirokazu Kore-eda (Still Walking, After The Storm) is best known for his family dramas, he’s no stranger to delivering the occasional curveball. His latest departure comes in the form of this dark, chilly legal thriller. The Third Murder is an absorbing, morally ambiguous whodunnit that digs deep into the human aspects of a troubling story with no easy answers.
