The Truth (La vérité) (2019)



Critic Consensus: The Truth may not stand with Hirokazu Kore-eda's best work, but it finds the writer-director revisiting familiar themes with a typically sensitive touch.

Critic Reviews for The Truth (La vérité)

All Critics (40) | Top Critics (9)

The Truth, like so much of Kore-eda's work, is fundamentally minor; it has one of those slightly maudlin piano scores that he favors, much too blatantly announcing the wistfulness.

Foreign auteurs often go astray as they make their way to the West, and it's a relief that Kore-eda's approach to delicate family dynamics spans the language barrier, though hardly a surprise.

This wise and diaphanous little drama finds Kore-eda once again exploring his usual obsessions...yet another insightful look at the underlying fabric of a modern family.

One of Deneuve's greatest performances, with Kore-eda transforming the magisterial persona she frequently supplies to other directors into something more complex, tragic and yet defiant. She deserves awards for it. And so does the film.

Even working in another language and on another continent, Kore-eda once again captures the intricacies of the human condition.

August 28, 2019 | Full Review…

It has the playful lightness of touch, the wit and warmth that are an essential part of the Kore-eda signature; it's also an affectionate ode to French cinema itself...
