The great names in cinema
| 121 minutes | 2018
Through his portrait of a Japanese family trying to survive poverty through petty scams, the filmmaker behind Like Father, Like Son continues his examination of filial bonds. Adopting a tragicomic tone, Kore-eda takes a sensitive, lighthearted look at a family-by-choice. What is the true definition of a clan? With its pared-down camera work that prefers details and subtleties to grand statements and an absolutely adorable group of actors, Shoplifters is heartwarming right up until its astounding, wrenching final frames.
