The Truth

Critics 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.

  • Using compassion and the slightest touch of syrup, Kore-eda brings his characters to a place where they realize with shock that they're finally on the same page.

  • It feels like Koreeda used his awesome clout to make the kind of standard picture that we get a dozen of every year.

  • It's gentle and a little wistful... It's fine, which is not what you expect to say with the people involved, but I enjoyed it.

    July 9, 2020 | Full Review…
  • The new film returns to some of Kore-eda's favorite themes of responsibility, legacy, and the fluidity of roles between parents and children.

    July 7, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Everything - every scene, every line of dialogue - feels like it's working toward a point. Which, when you think about it, is a good way to never actually make a point.

    July 6, 2020 | Full Review…
  • The Truth is layered and offers a treat for those who savor acting on the highest level, but it is a step down from his best films and may hold its strongest appeal for those who label themselves cineastes and art house movie-lovers.
