Osamu and his family live in poverty in Tokyo. Trying to make ends meet, he and his son shoplift. They live in a humble abode on the periphery, forming with the other members of the household a weird clan of petty criminals. One day, Osamu discovers a little homeless girl, playing alone in frost weather on a balcony. After taking her home, he informally adopts the abandoned child. Osamu’s deed results in revealing the mystery within the shoplifters’ clan and casts doubt on the traditional notion of family. Kore-eda’s Shoplifters is a sensitive, multi-layered, refined drama about unconditional love and the dignity of the poor.

Wild Bunch

 

Hirokazu Koreeda

Hirokazu Kore-eda (b. 1962), a celebrated Japanese film-maker and master of depicting family relationships, began his career in television as a documentary creator. His major feature films include the drama Nobody Knows (2004), in which he proved to be a highly dexterous director conceptually working with child actors, and the drama Like Father, Like Son (2013), which earned him the Jury Prize at Cannes. A subtle and extremely complex film, similarly to Kore-da’s latest humble triumph, Shoplifters, it ponders love and upbringing in relation to genetic parentage.
