Highly Anticipated: Confessions (告白)
This. It is the film to watch when released. Confessions is generating huge buzz at Cannes, where it was picked up by Third Window Films for distribution in the UK. Based on a best-selling novel, it is the story of a junior high school teacher (played by Takako Matsu) whose young daughter is brutally murdered. Believing that a few of her own students are responsible, she decides to leave the school, but not before delivering a chilling confession to her class in which she states that she has already enacted her plan for vengeance. I cannot wait. The trailer is amazing, giving off the same atmosphere as Battle Royale, with the insane kids and strong classical music. Takako Matsu is taking on this dark role, which I believe she will pull off well.
