Somewhere in Tokyo, Osamu Shibata and his wife Nobuyo live in poverty. While Osamu receives
occasional employment and Nobuyo has a low-paying job, the family relies in large part on the
grandmother's pension. As he is shoplifting for groceries with his son, Shota, they discover Yuri, a
homeless girl. Osamu takes her home, where the family observes evidence of abuse. Despite their
strained finances, they informally adopt her. However, the Tokyo police, aware that Yuri is missing,
begin to search for her.

Production

Director Hirokazu Kore-eda said that he developed the story for Shoplifters when considering his earlier
film Like Father, like Son; the question was "what makes a family"?[1] Kore-eda described it as his
"socially conscious" film.[2] With this story, Kore-eda said he did not want the perspective to be from
only a few individual characters, but to capture "the family within the society", a "wide point of view" in
the vein of his 2004 Nobody Knows.[1] He set his story in Tokyo and was also influenced by the Japanese
Recession,[1] including media reports of how people lived in poverty and of shoplifting.[3]

Production began in December 2017,[4] with Fuji Television Network, Gaga, and AOI Pro producing.[5]
Lily Franky and Sakura Ando joined the cast before principal photography began in mid-December.[6]
Child actors Sasaki Miyu and Jyo Kairi were cast for their first film.[5] Sosuke Ikematsu, Chizuru Ikewaki
and Yūki Yamada joined the cast in February.[7] Cinematographer Kondo Ryuto used 35 mm film with a
Arricam ST, aware 35 mm was a preference of Kore-eda's and also seeking the right texture and grain for
the story.[8]

Release

With Gaga Corporation as its distributor,[5] the film was selected to screen at the 2018 Cannes Film
Festival,[9] where it went on to win the Palme d'Or for best film at the festival.[10] In Japan, it is
scheduled for release on 8 June 2018.[11] Magnolia Pictures also obtained the rights to distribute the
film in North America.[12] On May 23 2018, Thunderbird Releasing acquired the UK distribution
rights.[13]
Critical response

Hirokazu Kore-eda received positive reviews for his direction.

On review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes, the film holds an approval rating of 100% based on 12
reviews, with an average rating of 9/10.[14] On Metacritic, the film has a weighted average score of 93
out of 100, based on 8 critics, indicating "universal acclaim".[15]

Peter Bradshaw of The Guardian gave Shoplifters 4/5 stars, declaring it a "rich, satisfying film".[16] The
Hollywood Reporter critic Deborah Young called it "bittersweet" as it "contrasts the frigid emotions of
socially correct behavior with the warmth and happiness of a dishonest lower-class family".[17] Robbie
Collin of The Daily Telegraph awarded it five stars, hailing it as an "outstanding domestic drama, crafted
by Kore-eda with crystalline insight and an unsparing emotional acuity".[18]

For IndieWire, David Ehrlich gave it a grade of "A–" and wrote the film "stings" with "the loneliness of
not belonging to anyone, and the messiness of sticking together".[19] The Wrap's Ben Croll declared it
Kore-eda's "richest film to date".[20] In Time Out, Geoff Andrew gave it four stars and saluted Kore-eda
as "a modern-day Ozu".[21] Variety's Maggie Lee also compared it to Oliver Twist by Charles
Dickens;[22] Lily Franky's character Osamu was likewise compared to Dickens' character Fagin.[16]

Accolades

The film competed at the Cannes Film Festival,[23] where it won the Palme d'Or on 19 May.[24] It was
the first Japanese Palme d'Or-winner since The Eel in 1997.[25][26] Jury president Cate Blanchett
explained the decision: "We were completely bowled over by Shoplifters. How intermeshed the
performances were with the directorial vision".[27
