|The Third Murder – Clip
The latest film from Palme dâ€™Or-winning director Hirokazu Kore-eda is a powerfully moving story of a man struggling to find the truth while questioning his own faith in the law. Leading attorney Shigemori takes on the defense of murder-robbery suspect Misumi who served jail time for another murder 30 years ago. Shigemoriâ€™s chances of winning the case seem low – his client freely admits his guilt, despite facing the death penalty if he is convicted. As he digs deeper into the case, as he hears the testimonies of the victimâ€™s family and Misumi himself, the once confident Shigemori begins to doubt whether his client is the murderer after all.
