What a film, by Hirokazu Kore-eda. Aside from winning top honors at Cannes, Shoplifters is also nominated for Best Foreign Language film at the Academy Awards.
The actors were fantastic, highly recommended watch.

Excellent, thank you. Still Waking is one of my favorites. Been looking forward to Shoplifters.

Watched it earlier.

Terrific ensemble cast, Kirin Kiki in her final performance was heartbreaking to watch. Sakura Ando is maybe the greatest standout but they're all so well-balanced that it barely matters. She just gets that one scene.

Really glad Shoplifters took some different turns from Kore-eda's recent movies, particularly towards the great final act. It's not my favorite movie of his but almost flawless, anyway. Glad he's now finally getting the recognition he deserves state-wise, too!

Great movie. Managed to catch it at the Tiff Bell Lightbox in Toronto in December, and was really glad to have been able to watch it in the theater.

For movies I really enjoy, I prefer to buy the Blu-Ray. However, with this film it is DVD only in the US! Guess I’m going digital with this movie!

I just realized this is by the same guy that made Maborosi - which is maybe my favourite movie ever. I need to check this out ASAP.

Thought it was really thought provoking but it's not my favorite of his.

Oh, thanks for the heads up! I haven't seen any Kore-eda other than Nobody Knows, but I've heard great things about this.

I didn't like the last 40 minutes or so of this, once it becomes a shameless tearjerker.

The early scenes were quite strong though... very good ensemble acting.

I definitely prefer several other Kore-era films (After Life, Still Walking, etc...).

Excellent film, and unintentionally the first Palms D'or winner I've seen since pulp fiction
