The True Motive
The defense attorney Shigemori (Masaharu Fukuyama) is summoned to help his coworkers in a murder case. The prisoner Misumi (Kôji Yakusho) has confessed the murder of his former boss and factory owner that was burnt to ashes nearby a river to rob his wallet to pay debts in gambling. Misumi will face death penalty since thirty years ago he killed another man and was defended by Shigemori´s father. Shigemori´s purpose is to change the sentence from death penalty to life. Shigemori is not satisfied with the lack of evidences of the case and notes that Misumi changes his testimony in each interview. He decides to investigate deeper the case and questions the true motive for the murder.
“Sandome no satsujin”, a.k.a. “The Third Murder”, is a tribunal and fatherhood drama with a screenplay with many twists. The storyline is based on a murder case with a confessing defendant and his new attorney seeking evidences to learn the truth. In common, there is the fatherhood: Shigemori is an absent father due to his dedication to his profession. Misumi is also an absent father since he has spent his last thirty years imprisoned. The victim was an abusive father and Misumi connects to his daughter as a second chance in life. In the end, was the murder to pay a debt with the Yakuza or a righteous justice act? My vote is seven.
Title (Brazil): “O Terceiro Assassinato” (“The Third Murder”)
Captivating and Suspenseful Whodunit
This Japanese film is gripping and suspensful, with brilliant acting and stunning, beautiful cinematography. Both a whodunit and psychological thriller, Ignore the adolescent and adolescent-minded reviewers who give it a low rating. Let them stick to action Marvel cartoons. (not that I mind brainless enetertainment every now and then).
This award winning film is for thinking film lovers. Some of the scenes are a montage of beautiful photos. The acting is superb, and the debate among the defense lawyers over strategy and truth is a reflection on morals and justice. Witty and funny, not pedantic. The main characters are all believable, well acted. The story unfolds slowly, via many tangential but related scenes. The “truth” behind the murder is both revelatory and believable. No Hollywood endings here.
In short, this is a well crafted, beautifully shot and gripping drama. If you love great moviemaking, don’t miss it !
