Shoplifters

A move away from the crime genre picture explored in The Third Murder, this is a return to family and the world of childhood from acclaimed Japanese director Kore-Eda. A look at an unconventional extended family with skeletons in their closet, the film recalls the director’s trademarks, namely a sensitivity to the rigours of the modern world, beautiful framing, phenomenal performances and an ability to depict without sentiment the world of childhood. Winner of the Palme d’Or.
