Movie I dig 023: Kokuhaku (Confessions) (2010)

Kokuhaku will leave you with an empty feeling and a lurking hatred for teenagers. So no, it’s not an easy film to watch, even though the main subject, revenge, isn’t that complicated. I also have to mention that I couldn’t stop watching it. I grabbed me and didn’t let me go from start to end.

It’s about a highschool teacher in Japan who announces that she is going to stop teaching them. While doing this announcement she also tells her students that her young daughter passed away. Then, as she continues she explains that she thinks – and has proof – of it being a murder instead of an accident, as the police concluded. From here things start happening fast and I’m not going to spoil it.

This movie shows once again how fragile life can be, but also how cruel the living can be. Even though it’s not an easy movie to watch, it certainly is well worth it.
