“Hirokazu Kore-eda’s hydra of modern morals and manners”-Guardian Film ★★★★

“As you’d expect from Kore-eda, it’s all told with the utmost detail and care” Time Out ★★★★

Mysterious and deeply moving, MONSTER is a breathtaking piece of cinema from master director Hirokazu Kore-eda (Broker, Shoplifters).


When her young son Minato starts to behave strangely, single mother Saori knows that there is something wrong. Discovering that one of his teachers might be responsible, she storms into the school demanding answers. But as the story unfolds through the eyes of mother, teacher and child, shocking truths begin to emerge.


A timely tale of family, false impressions, and, ultimately, hope, Kore-eda’s typically sensitive work features powerful performances by Ando Sakura, Tanaka Yuko and Nagayama Eita, and a sublime score from the Oscar-winning composer Ryuichi Sakamoto.


With Palme d'Or-winning Japanese auteur Hirokazu Kore-eda's new film MONSTER arriving on our screens from 15 March, we are delighted to present a mini-season of his finest earlier works - with exclusive video introductions by Japanese cinema expert Jasper Sharp - across Sundays and Mondays in March.
