[Credits] [Tickets & Termine] [Trailer]

A search for the truth on seve­ral levels, in which many things are not what they appear to be, recent­ly hono­red at Cannes.

Hirokazu Kore-eda’s cen­tral the­me, the fami­ly, is once again his start­ing point in this magni­fi­cent­ly orchestra­ted nar­ra­ti­ve. And once again the Japanese mas­ter direc­tor demons­tra­tes his keen power of obser­va­ti­on. In a nuan­ced way, he addres­ses such the­mes as arson, bul­ly­ing, ali­en­ati­on, and pre­ju­di­ce, approa­ching them from mul­ti­ple per­spec­ti­ves and get­ting the audi­ence to think about them. What makes a per­son a mons­ter? And who gets to deter­mi­ne that?
