A film by Hirokazu Kore-eda. Starts March 21st at the fsk. In Japanese with German subtitles.
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?
