More than twenty years into a directing career focused on elegant, but quietly devastating tales of family life, Hirokazu Kore-eda (Our Little Sister, Like Father, Like Son) has produced a high watermark with this Cannes Palme d’Or winner. Unsentimental, it feels like a culmination of the tender humanism of his past work.

Osamu (Franky Lily) is a shoplifter par excellence, who has carefully drilled his petty criminal ‘family’, including his wife (Sakura Ando) and sex worker Aki (Mayu Matsuoka). Their family grows when they discover a girl left home alone and take her into their group. But darker elements start to brew, threatening the family.

Crafted to steal your heart, this is precise, poignant filmmaking of great craft and sensitivity.
