The Third Murder is a captivating puzzle.” ★★★★ – Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
 

It becomes clear from the start that Misumi (Koji Yakusho) robbed and killed an industrialist – Misumi freely admits as much. But defence attorney Shigemori (Masaharu Fukuyama – star of Kore-eda’s Like Father Like Son) isn’t satisfied. As he goes about his research, secret histories are brought to light, inconsistencies surface and unlikely alliances point to a more complicated set of circumstances.

A profoundly complex moral tale from a master filmmaker.
