The Third Murder / Sando-me no satsujin

by Hirokazu Koreeda Gala Premieres

„You shouldn’t expect too much from a murderer like me.“ Star attorney Shigemori agrees to defend Misumi, who is accused of murder after a fatal holdup. Misumi only just escaped the death sentence for a murder 30 years previous. Astonishingly laid-back Misumi has already confessed to the murder, and all the evidence indeed points to the fact that he is the perpetrator. The deeper Shigemori delves into this case, however, the more he begins to doubt his client. Soon he is faced with a complicated family story and the plot thickens… One of the greatest contemporary masters, Hirokazu Koreeda’s most recent work offers a lyrically philosophical whodunnit, which intelligently broaches questions of guilt and innocence.
