Lovingly detailed and accented by an aching score composed by Ryuichi Sakamoto, who died in March, Monster is one of the finest films of the year, and its structure — like its circle of characters — carries secrets that can only be unraveled through patience and empathy.
Monster had its world premiere at the 76th Cannes Film Festival on May 17, 2023, where it competed for the Palme d'Or and was honored with the Queer Palm as well as the Best Screenplay award.
In Japanese with English subtitles.
