Shoplifters

15 yrs 121 minutes 2018 8.0

In a small shed among the high-rise buildings in Tokyo, Grandma Hatsue Shibata lives with the rest of her family. They are poor and crowded but take care of each other and share everything. When the money from their temporary jobs at strip clubs and laundries is not enough, they shoplift. During one of their stealing rounds, Osamu and his son find a little girl locked out in the cold on a balcony and takes her home without considering the consequences. Shoplifters won the Golden Palm in Cannes and were nominated for both an Oscar and a Golden Globe for Best Foreign Film. Sydsvenskans Annika Gustafsson calls the director Hirokazu Koreeda one of the "most prominent representatives of modern film art" and also writes "the acting is exquisite, not least from the two children."
