This year’s Palme d’Or winner, “Shoplifters” (2018) by Hirokazu Koreeda (“Nobody Knows,” “Like Father, Like Son”) is a transcendental morality-crime-drama where family bonding matters.
The controversy centers in Japanese morality and the image they present to the world as a developed nation, while some of its people still live in deficit, isolation, and poverty.
|Hirokazu Koreeda, director. Film critic José Alberto Hermosillo|
“Shoplifters” is an amusing, unforgettable, and heartbreaking. For some audiences is hard to connect the actions and relationships of every character in the film due to a cryptic, opaque, and at the same time complex emotions reflected in the story.
