As his Palme d'Or-winning new film 'Shoplifters' opens in our cinemas, discover this intriguing and expertly paced courtroom drama from Hirokazu Kore-eda.
A man confesses to murder, although there is no evidence of his guilt. He has just completed prison time for a previous murder so it seems an open and shut case. But with the death sentence hanging over him, the accused unravels a more complex scenario.
Hirokazu Koreeda’s ('Like Father, Like Son') 'The Third Murder' presents a chilling indictment of capital punishment.
