The Truth ★★★★

A Japanese director made a French movie with French actors and comic lightness that feels authentically French. 'The Truth' proves Hirokazu Kore-eda can step out of his comfort zone of the Japanese family drama into another culture without wrong-footing it. It's a smart, beautifully observed, and deeply humane family drama with a masterclass performance from Catherine Deneuve.

MUBI.
