Moving human story
Hirokazu Koreeda’s Shoplifters brought a tear to my eye. This 2018 Palme d’Or winner centers around a family of shoplifters. Sounds like a simple story? Watch how this film unfolds within its simple story. The story touches on themes deeper than that. The characters, the human relationship, and the sheer idea of “what’s really right in this society?” was evident and really captivates my heart.

Touching
This file is armed with a really touching plot, coupled with showing how a little kid can bring a family together, and also breaking them apart.

Swept away
Just watched this gem of a movie and felt that I simply had to document it in words. This is not your typical family drama, it runs much deeper than that. You'll find yourself questioning many issues portrayed along the way and reflecting on how the real world really works versus what could have been. It delves into moral dilemmas - many of which take a darker turn as the movie plods along. The big reveal may not have been what we were expecting but by then, you'd have been more than invested in this quirky and lovable family. Without giving anything else away, this is one ride that I won't be forgetting about anytime soon.

Family love
You don’t need to be related by blood to be love by a family. The ending was a little depressing for me but it’s realistic.

Different kind of family
Great and heartwarming film that showed a different side of life in Japan. Portrayal of a struggling family that is not tied by blood and questions the meaning of family, motherhood and poverty. The acting of sakura ando was particularly striking, especially in the scene where she was interrogated. Definitely recommend this movie, if slice of life genre of movies is your thing.

For The Abandoned People
It’s a deep, touching film that asks its audience to reflect on where they belong, and on what belongs to them. You don’t get to choose your own family, but family is still a choice that you have to make over and over again, each and every day.

Heart-wrenching
Emotional delicacy and formal modesty. Memorable characters and believable performances that quietly lead the viewer to reflect on societal values. This family is full of secrets and lies.
