Aro Recommended Shoplifters


aka: Manbiki kazoku
Japan 2018, 121 minutes
Dir. Kore-eda Hirokazu
Rating: [M] Sexual references.
Genres: Foreign Cinema, Drama


“A work of such emotional delicacy and formal modesty that you're barely prepared when the full force of what it's doing suddenly knocks you sideways.”~Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times

Aroview: Charming, funny and heartbreaking all at once, this drama from the Japanese master of humanism Kore-eda is set in Tokyo and follows a group of poverty-stricken outcasts who shoplift to make ends meet. A compassionate, resonant portrayal of family and survival.
