    Takako Matsu (K-20: Legend Of The Mask) plays a middle-school teacher whose four-year-old daughter is found dead. Shattered, she finally returns to her classroom only to become convinced that two of her students were responsible for her daughter's murder. No one believes her, and she may very well be wrong, but she decides, nevertheless, 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 must be punished.

    Brilliantly building the psychological tension from the film's very start before pulling out all the stops for a devastating and explosive finale, Tetsuya Nakashima (Kamikaze Girls) has produced what is arguably his most mature and impressive work to date. A superb script, excellent performances from a fine cast and a perfectly pitched soundtrack (that includes tracks by Radiohead, acclaimed Japanese experimental rock band, Boris, and this year's Mercury Prize winners, The XX) make Confessions one of the most original and impressive films of the year.
