Shoplifters | 万引き家族

A FILM BY HIROKAZU KORE-EDA

JAPAN, 2018 / Drama, Crime / 121 min / PG12

After one of their shoplifting sessions, Osamu and his son come across a little girl in the freezing cold. At first reluctant to shelter the girl, Osamu’s wife agrees to take care of her after learning of the hardships she faces. Although the family is poor, barely making enough money to survive through petty crime, they seem to live happily together until an unforeseen incident reveals hidden secrets, testing the bonds that unite them...

The film premiered in 2018 at the Cannes Film Festival, where it went on to win the Palme d'Or. Shoplifters was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film and the Golden Globe Award for Best Foreign Language Film.

是枝裕和監督最新作! 家族を描き続けてきた名匠が、“家族を超えた絆”を描く衝撃の感動作。高層マンションの谷間にポツンと取り残された今にも壊れそうな平屋に、治と信代の夫婦、息子の祥太、信代の妹の亜紀の4人が転がり込んで暮らしている。彼らの目当ては、この家の持ち主である初枝の年金だ。足りない生活費は、万引きで稼いでいた。社会という海の底を這うような家族だが、なぜかいつも笑いが絶えず、互いに口は悪いが仲よく暮らしていた。 冬のある日、近隣の団地の廊下で震えていた幼い女の子を、見かねた治が家に連れ帰る。体中傷だらけの彼女の境遇を思いやり、信代は娘として育てることにする。だが、ある事件をきっかけに家族はバラバラに引き裂かれ、それぞれが抱える秘密と切なる願いが次々と明らかになっていく。

息子とともに万引きを繰り返す父親・治にリリー・フランキー、初枝役に樹木希林と是枝組常連のキャストに加え、信江役の安藤サクラ、信江の妹・亜紀役の松岡茉優らが是枝作品に初参加した注目の映画!
