Saturday Night Cine Club - The Third Murder

Saturday, September 1, 2018 @ 7:30pm
Theatre Charlotte
Presented by Charlotte Film Society

Shigemori (Fukuyama Masaharu), a rather jaded state defender, is assigned an apparently open-and-shut case. Misumi (Koji Yakusho) who has already spent 30 years in prison for a murder committed in the 1980s, has allegedly killed his factory-owner boss, burned the corpse and stolen the victim’s wallet.

Shigemori is tasked with pleading the court down from the death penalty to a life sentence, but the lawyer soon realises there is more to the case than meets the eye.

There is no material evidence linking the accused with the crime, beyond Misumi’s own confession. His vague account is inconsistent with the crime scene and, more confusingly, varies wildly from one telling to another. He even sells a story to a supermarket tabloid claiming that the victim’s wife had offered to pay out from her husband’s life insurance. The victim’s mysterious teenage daughter (Suzu Hirose) adds to the confusion.

A guest speaker will lead a discussion after the screening.

Run time: 124 minutes
