AAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This film is SO beautiful. Love pours from it and flows through it. It touches on so many important subjects and raises so many questions about what's morally right and wrong. The little kids, Shota and Yuri/Lin are the heart of this film, their mum Yoko is the soul, but every character earned such a special place in my heart, they were all written with so much care and attention and softness. I definitely need to rewatch again because it being spoken in a language I don't understand, even if with the aid of subtitles, there's a lot of meaning that gets lost and this film is particularly filled with it. The last two scenes will stay on my mind for days to come I'm sure of it, and that's when I know a movie should go straight to my favourites list. 9.7/10

From a certain aspect it is a fable about every coin has two sides or in other words nothing is fully black or white. The members of this family make dubious things in order to be able to eat, drink, wash themselves etc. or shortly to survive. The perfect example which embodies this theory is the stoyline of _Yuri_. On the one hand, we can look at this like they kidnapped a child and later on taught her how to steal. On the other hand, they took a little girl in who was neglected by her parents. They looked after her, nurtured and cared for her and she became a member of this family who has nothing much but thenselves and they appreciate that little what they got. As _Yuri_ was got back to her birth parents by the authorities she is treated like a pain in the ass by her mother. So, I ask the question: which family made her bad example exactly? They give each other home, love and eventually an opportunity to the children to break out from that poor life situation.

Hirokazu Koreeda is a master of cinema. I'm still digesting this movie but I'm pretty sure it's one of the best of 2018. It is an absolute gem. A superb tale of love, kinship and what it means to be family. Morals are queried, and formalities are tested. Lily Franky, Sakura Andô and those 2 children are impeccable. The dialogue and characters are perfect. Beautiful, beautiful cinema.

How to win the Palme d'Or at Cannes:

_Shoplifters_ isn't a bad film. It has some interesting things to say about families and it says them extremely well. But when I think about a More

Bittersweet. A beautiful exploration of family and poverty in 21st century Japan. Right from the start, the movie finds the exact right tone. It’s warm and sweet without ever becoming too sentimental, almost like a Ghibli film in live action. The cinematography is gorgeous and the acting feels so More
