Shoplifters--Superb!
« on: 14 May 2019, 02:38 pm »
My wife and I both REALLY enjoyed this movie. It was very well done!!! :thumb:
9 out of 10 stars.
99% of critics and 90% of viewers on RT.
Rent this masterpiece today.








"Reflecting on what family is and the ties that can grow between unrelated people, Koreeda gradually brings us close to his characters in this beautiful, bittersweet drama before hitting us with something quite unexpected (and brilliant) that only adds new layers of meaning to it."

"After one of their shoplifting sessions, Osamu and his son come across a little girl in the freezing cold. At first reluctant to shelter the girl, Osamu's wife agrees to take care of her after learning of the hardships she faces. Although the family is poor, barely making enough money to survive through petty crime, they seem to live happily together until an unforeseen incident reveals hidden secrets, testing the bonds that unite them..."

NP, I rented from Netflix. I'll take a look , see if it can be streamed. It's in Japanese, subtitled. It looks like it can be streamed on Amazon, and maybe Hulu, for pay.

Hirokazu Kore-eda has made several notable family-dramas.  I recommend watching After the Storm.  It's available on Amazon ...free with  Prime Membership.

Other masterful Kore-eda  films, Like Father, Like Son and Nobody Knows, can be rented on Amazon.

I checked out "After the Storm".  Subtitles only, no English soundtrack :.(

Haven't seen it, but my gf loved it as well as the previous film by the director. Fascinating subject matter.
