Hirokazu Koreeda / Japan 2018 / 121 min / Cert 15 / Subtitles
Winner of the 2018 Cannes Palme d’Or, Koreeda (Like Father, Like Son and The Third Murder) has excelled himself with his latest film. Shoplifters is a complex, profoundly moving drama about a makeshift Japanese family scarcely one rung from the bottom of the social ladder, surviving a hand-to-mouth existence, while teaching the kids shoplifting like modern-day Oliver Twists. Shoplifters starts in a gently comedic vein but one by one the family’s secrets are revealed.  ‘A gorgeous film, a kind of  culmination of all the director’s best qualities, unalloyed by the sentimentality that can sometimes sweeten his mixes too much.’  (British Film Institute)
