A Palme d’Or winning drama about a Japanese family of crooks. From the director of Like Father, Like Son and Our Little Sister. The ensuing drama is a complex, subtle, mysterious film that builds to an extra-ordinary surprise ending. A Japanese couple stuck with inadequate incomes take to shoplifting to make ends meet. However, the unusual routine is about to change from matter-of-fact to something more dramatic. After a routine shoplifting spree they are going home when they spot a hungry little girl and before long the family has expanded to six, as they open their doors to this beleaguered young girl. As the Director comments, my films are complicated because life is never simple. The film ends with a twist worthy of psychological suspense noir.
