Hirokazu Kore-eda / Japan 2023 / 126 min / Cert 12A / Subtitles

Starting with distressed single mother Saori marching into her son’s school, to berate the staff for what she understands to be bullying and physical abuse, Kore-eda’s follow-up to his award-winning films Broker and Shoplifters delicately brings us to view events from three different perspectives: mother’s, teacher’s and child’s – three differing ‘truths’ that are gradually unravelled and reconsidered, all the while reflected in a beautiful accompanying musical score. ‘One of the best movies my eyes have ever seen. Beautiful, engaging, mind-blowing and inspiring. How it’s filmed, the suspense, everything at first doesn’t make sense just to make the perfect sense at the end. I loved it with every fibre of me’ (Yasmine Idali)
