Nobody Knows

Nobody Knows ★★★★★

"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!
