Confessions (15)
Part of International Oscar Season

18 February 2011, London

The Tricycle Theatre has established a unique reputation for presenting plays that reflect the cultural diversity of its community, in particular by Black, Irish, Jewish, Asian and South African writers, as well as for responding to contemporary issues and events with its ground-breaking ‘tribunal plays’ and political work.


We are holding a special screening of the Japanese entry for Academy Award’s Foreign Language Category, Confessions . The film will be screened as part of a prestigious week-long film festival celebrating the best films from around the world in our luxury art-house 300-seat Cinema.

From Tetsuya Nakashima, director of Kamikaze Girls and Memories of Matsuko, come a psychological thriller and box office hit that has had the whole of Japan on the edge of its seat.

Takako Matsu leads as a middle-school teacher whose four-year-old daughter is murdered. Shattered, she finally returns to her classroom, only to become convinced that two of her students were responsible for her daughter’s death. No one believes her, and she may very well be wrong, but she decides that it’s time to take her revenge. What happens next is all-out psychological warfare waged against her students in an attempt to force them into confessing what she knows in her heart to be true: they are guilty. And it’s true: they all turn out to be guilty, but not of the crime she thinks they committed.
