Osamu and his family are ‘Shoplifters’, reliant on petty crime to help stretch their meagre incomes. One day, he discovers a girl out in the cold and invites her home.
She was abandoned, freezing and seemingly starving, and he couldn’t bring himself to leave her alone. Despite their poverty, the family lives happily together… until something upsets their delicate balance and brings long-buried secrets to light.
A powerful, moving drama and a love letter to the complications of family, ‘Shoplifters’ won the Palme d’Or at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival.
