Winner of this year’s Cannes Palme d’Or, this rich story of a poor family will steal your heart.

On wintry Tokyo backstreets, a man and his young boy are doing the shopping for the household – their practiced shoplifting routine yields enough for everyone. Going home they spot a neglected little girl and she soon joins their struggling, working class extended family. Her presence brings joy but also life-changing revelations. This is Hirokazu Kore-eda’s most beautifully satisfying film yet.
