The Third Murder

Hirokazu Kore-eda (Still Walking, Nobody Knows) takes a fascinating left turn with this intricate murder mystery, about a defence lawyer who believes that his client – the self-confessed killer of a wealthy industrialist – is the fall guy for a sinister conspiracy. The Third Murder is a departure for the director, but still a riveting study of human behaviour and a characteristically complex moral tale.
