Enjoyable with simple moments that defines family.
Shoplifter is set on the edge of Tokyo about a misfit family that has to rely on petty crimes to survive. Though they might not be bonded by blood, their misfortune brings them together to become a simple and loving family. As their story comes to light, their crimes and intentions are questioned. Similar to Parasite, the movie address topics of social issues like poverty and ask the viewer what they considered as morally right. An enjoyable story with simple moments that developed each character to show their bond.
Shoplifters Stole My Heart
Sakura Andô is staggeringly beautiful, which would be distracting if she weren’t such a great actress. She definitely stood out and that’s tough for a movie with such great performances. I thoroughly enjoyed this and it was full of surprises, which I thought would be tough to do outside total twists or shock scares. Classifying this as “crime, drama” is inaccurate, but I get it. It’s a drama, but it’s so uplifting both the drama and the crimes are outshone by heart in this movie, and I say “heart” as a total misanthrope. This movie really touches you and shows you just how important human connection is to us, and not in a smarmy way, but rather in a way that highlights how that need for connection can be so easily assuaged and turn into genuine familial love.
