Varghese’s review published on Letterboxd:
"I'm not allowed to be happy?''
How can your own flesh and blood say that???
Koreeda channels Ozu aka the Master of Simplicity and pays tribute to Hitchcock in a slow burn thriller sequence which had me in knots.Had this been in the hands of another director it would have turned into loud and cliched consequences but instead it becomes a restrained,effective and thoughtful experience. Well deserved winner of Best Actor at the Cannes Film Festival!
