Kore-eda Hirokazu‘s film Monster premiered in competition at the 2023 Cannes Film Festival, winning best screenplay (for Yuji Sakamoto). Scored by late Oscar-winning composer Sakamoto Ryuichi (The Last Emperor) and lensed by Kondo Ryoto (Shoplifters), Monster tells the story of a widowed mother who notices that her young son has begun exhibiting strange behavior. When she brings her concerns to the staff at his school, she discovers that a teacher is responsible and demands an explanation. Told through the multilayered perspectives of mother, teacher, and child, the film gradually unveils the truth, which proves much more complex than anyone expects.

The film is in Japanese with English subtitles.
