手紙 (Tegami)

Tsuyoshi and Naoki are two brothers who have always looked out for each other since they lost their parents. When older brother Tsuyoshi becomes unemployed, he is driven to commit a robbery in order to help Naoki with his university tuition fees and accidentally murders. Undergoing a rough life as the brother of a murderer, Naoki begins to despise his sibling for the trouble he caused. This beautiful and tear-jerking social portrait of the offender’s family shows the toll the act of murder can have on the lives of those surrounding the perpetrator and is based on a novel of the same title by the best-selling writer Keigo Higashino.

The Letter, dir. Jiro Shono, Japan 2006, 121 mins, Japanese with English subtitles
