Kokuhaku” means Acknowledgments. “Kokuhaku” is its original name. This movie is distributed into many confessions of many characters. Movie is based on award winning novel by Minato Kanae. This is a story of a teacher who takes her daughter’s murder payback. Story is simple but the plan is frightening. You can’t make-believe what is going to happen next. What is her plan? What she’s going to do? You can’t also know who is the main scoundrel or who is the core character. Because every time they are confessing you will think this is the central character.

After watching this movie, I became a fan of Japanese movie. Actors are so much excellent. Especially Takako Matsu. You can’t understand what’s her role in this movie. Yukito Nishii this boy also acted so well. And don’t know why but I loved Ai Hashimoto’s acting. If I get a chance to meet her I will propose her in front of every one.
