TOM's Film Club: Shoplifters (15) on Sunday 9th August 2020

Please note, this event has been cancelled.

Osamu (Lily Franky), his wife Nobuyu (Sakura Andô) and grandma Hatsue (played by the late great veteran Japanese character actress Kirin Kiki who was a regular in the films of Kore-eda) head the Shibatas; a poverty-stricken family living in a ramshackle Tokyo bungalow who routinely turn to petty thieving to make ends meet. After one of their shoplifting sessions, Osamu and son Shota (Kairi Jyo) happen upon Yuri (Miyu Sasaki), a little girl sheltering from the cold, and take her in. Despite the continued hardships of their existence, this newly modified family lives happily – until an unforeseen incident begins to test their bond.

By shining the spotlight on an unconventional domestic unit with insight, compassion and humour, Kore-eda gives rare prominence to Japanese society’s urban underclass and questions the possibilities of survival on the margins. An incredibly satisfying film made up of delicate brushstrokes, Shoplifters charms while eschewing overt sentimentality and is full of the director’s trademark subtlety and nuanced moral inquiry.

“This is a brilliant and audacious film, one of his very best, a study of family trauma and fear of poverty, reviving themes from earlier films such as Nobody Knows (2004) and Like Father Like Son (2013)” - Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
