Shoplifters


A small family of poor Japanese worker lives almost exclusively retired grandmother, so some of my relatives sometimes steal in stores. One day, returning home after another steal, the head of the family drags the balcony on the first floor of a little girl whose mother no nothing to do with her. Wife meets discovery joyless, but still accepts the child. Modest financial position does not interfere with the close-knit family to live happily, on TV, when they see an ad about a missing girl and decide not to return the child to the rightful mother.

The Japanese Director of Hirokazu Koreeda, who hails from Tokyo, even a know about word such drama as "no know", "Flower", "Walk-walk", "the Miracle" and of course "Son in the father." Koreeda takes a deep, life-affirming movies, rubs alive. After the triumph of "Shoplifter's" now it is a new movie with the first persons of French cinema — Catherine Deneuve and Juliette Binoche.

Seeing a film about Thieves, this deep pattern struck in the heart. Movie real and filmed very realistically, as if we looked at the window of someone's real story. The film is emotional and heartfelt, cute and warm and killer at the same time breaking in part. Experience different range of emotions looking at it, and this tragicomedy is really the tip of the glory of this Director.

- You all my life insurance. With you are not facing death in alone.

We see how a poor family lives from pension pensions elderly grandmother. Each of them works, but only have enough money for food. The head of the family was taught to steal, and characters that do every day. When they find the night a little girl, then decided to take it yourself. She quickly becomes a member of their family, but its occurrence is fatal for each member of this little family...

First, the film seems good and cute and goes to one mood, but then all changes in front of us the tragic drama of ordinary people who all make a from a great mind.

Expensive.
Not worth more than money
.

By the way, the actors are all played clearly and without a hint of false. Especially memorable was a young boy and girl. When together with good directing such a great game, the movie twice looks with pleasure. The script then unpredictable it is impossible to predict what happens. The film looks at the alert in a daze, and more than you want to have all well.

What is this movie? The picture of the family, communication about ones and what could be more important than family? The story of "goodness", the naivety of simple people who do like good deeds, how they think, but the responsibility will come, because there is a real world over the door room.

Watching this movie, will not will remember his family, his most pleasant and warm memories associated with my mom, dad, grandma, something very warm. This is what is in this film, which is noticed and appreciated for the Cannes film festival. I would recommend the movie to view this movie, the viewers, who loves appreciate the genre of drama, and something real true world's great movie.

"Shop thief" — Japanese drama 2018. Heartbreaking movie, Hirokazu Koreeda not to the public, it for those who feel... the Film is strong and philosophical. Tell him  Yes, thanks for attention.

- You don't feel guilty about what children were taught to steal?
- I'm not even know what else can to teach.

The Japanese film "Shop thief" echoes the Korean film "Parasites" and focuses on the theme of social inequality in contemporary Asian society. Only if  the"Parasites" living in the slums of the family of ordinary people just stealing from neighbors Internet and fooling individuals from the upper strata of society, using their limitless gullibility and naivete, then "Shop thieves," everything goes much further. Here family have over the real theft — small and average. And not only stealing, but and fraud. In fact it turns out that all this family is fake and not real. Even their family — it is a fraud. In fact that is no family and people, not related to each other in any relationship and only pretends to be a family. Together they all holds a certain interest. What — this can be found out of the film.

Throughout the movie the characters eat something. Often stolen food. Moreover, it's very picturesque. With Champ, relish and smacking. At first it can seem strange and even a bit repulsive. But after all, if not through food, it is possible to understand another culture? In my opinion, is already encyclopedic and very true to the Director's reception.

At the end of the film we begin to learn shocking details about the heroes who at first seem to be just fine, more or less harmless crooks and lower marginal. But does the details of the rejection? Not at all. Along with the ugly details on the surface current philosophical questions. For example, a father is better — fake that teaches you to steal, but not bypasses his kindness, or a real one that threw you in a car for the Parking lot of the Motel? What kind of mother is better — a fake who steals from checked in dry-things forgotten in pockets, chains, rings, pins, tie other trifle, or the one real, which has, ignoriruet and meant a semi-starving existence? Which wife is better? A real showpiece that could be the main character, or the one imperfect, which takes the whole blame two and sits on the bars to leave on freedom of someone she likes. Some relatives better — those who live as train the schedule or flighty, disorderly, but fun cheerful? It is better that the parents filed a bad example for children, but was at this kind responsive with a healthy sense of humor, or to external decency just mechanically, without the souls fulfil their parental responsibilities? To paraphrase a famous film Mikhalkov's "Kinfolk", then children under the end is taken from the fake family would say: "you Not angry not I will from you." After all, they in the family really loved, even though they were "parents," the seventh water on the jelly.

It may seem that the main characters of the film are fixated on the money. After the meal, counting money — is the second importance the popularity of activities that family of crooks. But this is a modern society with its criteria and values. Because the menu is absolutely to all — even something to sleep on my knees girl strippers in men's club, which is working one of the characters of the film. Money is worth in charge is the measure of everything. The money worship and rich and poor. And insatiable thirst for money, which ever is not enough, makes the characters finally get spotted, take up on the path of correction.

The unwinding of the tangle of secrets and strange little family is a great resonance in society, with reporters and television stories. However, for the framework remains that have forced the main characters to become such. But the answer lies on the surface. It very well staged. Modern society, whether it's European or Asian, it is not enough love, warmth, sincerity and humanity. And it — amid loud calls for political correctness and tolerance. And if we do not want a repetition of these stories and the occurrence of similar "Addams family", then it is time to seek each other face and just learn to listen to each other. But still — guide life is not only material values, for the erection the absolute material values leads to obschesemeyny on the background of the external well-being.

Using an incredibly delicate touch, Japanese Director of Hirokazu Koreeda brings a fresh breath in a little frozen in the present time, the genre of social drama. The topic was on actually, less important-the political and more intimate: "Shop thief" digging out one of the toughest concepts in a human relations — the value of families. Despite good-natured and frivolous tone not changing even in the most unpleasant eye moments, in the end, the film descends to the dark territory of melancholy and leads to reflections. What I have a family, blood ties or there are more profound (and important) ties? Home drama the answer is not gives, although it raises the question simply masterful: an illustration of this problem in the movie is not was even so Frank.

"Shop thief" introduces a poor family somewhere in the urban landscapes of Japan. On first glance they seem relatively normal and sane poor: Ah, difficulties together will overcome! The family consists of father mothers of school-age boy and teenage girl. Four lives in close a dilapidated shack with her grandmother. All make ends meet tips: the man works some seasonal workers on a construction site, my mother works in almost bankrupt Laundry and daughter — in a strip club. Grandma also makes a contribution to the budget the form of pensions. Money catastrophically doesn't miss that the characters resort to petty theft in order not to starve.

Once the family takes a five-year girl lost in the big city. According to everything was hurting her real parents, so despite another mouth to feed, a little Yuri, illegal "adopt". Yuri it becomes part of the family, but with each new stage it becomes clear that skeletons have these people fully.

Koreeda very easy to present this drama the viewer because each of us, especially in dark times, wants to see Chaplinsky story about overcoming the difficulties of life. Deft handling leads to that "Shop thief" achieves the emotional resonance, but not because of the ease or good-natured approach to the story. Unique human qualities mixed up in the plot, each of heroes holds some secret. In a moment is an important turning point, completely changing the whole concept, and the rotation is likely not the story and social. Such allows you to explore the deeper context of what is happening, especially on the background of eternal existential fact "crime and punishment".

"Thieves" as do an important statement about the gap between personal happiness and material possessions. In an age of materialism, particularly in a country such as Japan, seems like such a breakthrough statement. Despite the hard work, the heroes resort to theft (in Japanese society is an incredible shame), but in General Koreeda causes arguments in favor of social control, and family: don't it's the opinion of the Director of "education" and"culture" win "nature" in the eternal dispute.

The main element, of course, is acting. Each of the artists fit perfectly into the way that he got. Several important sensual scenes (like the episode "cold noodle in a hot day") right accents in the characters, making them body most likely.

Interestingly, the tone of "Shoplifter's" feels simultaneously encouraging and incredibly depressing. With one hand, the film is very sharp and encouraging and other — depressing, but it configures the essential philosophy of the "bottom". Yes, the main characters — else trash, but they are strong in spirit, kind soul, and appreciate each other as well as and their illegal craft. Interesting questions about who is worthy to be a parent, emphasize that as a group of Japanese outsiders appreciate fallen as snow on the head, missing them inside of an entity. Sometimes, of course, appreciate "Thieves" is difficult: the film was not created for the European audience, so many of the excesses that the Japanese "neo-realism" can confuse or even shock. Concept in the heart of the movie, according to the whole, more successful and understandable. The feeling that easy played "Thieves" in plus, giving birth in the result is a strong drama with a very interesting cultural code: it seems that the script can be projected on any country, including (and maybe even highlighting) Russia. "But their air is cleaner, better medicine, and people are living longer, though, and boring. And we — fun, but... well".
