All Critics (17) | Top Critics (4)

Kore-eda's gentle drama about a made-up "family" of thieves living on the margins of society is shot through with the director's trademark generosity and attention to behavior.

May 30, 2018 | Full Review…

Another charming, funny and very affecting example of Kore-eda's special brand of tough-but-tender humanism.

May 25, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

What it lacks in newness it makes up in raw humanity.

May 14, 2018 | Rating: A- | Full Review…

Who better than Kore-eda, a director who whispers instead of shouts, is able to capture contradictions and issues though such a subtle, unforced style of storytelling?

May 14, 2018 | Full Review…

[Few directors] have succeeded in granting a parallel and generational role to their characters, and that is precisely what makes Hirokazu Koreeda's new film, Shoplifters, a wonderful... compendium about the ethics of crime. [Full review in Spanish]

June 18, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Kore-eda, who trained as a documentary filmmaker and once aspired to be a novelist, inserts lines that illuminate and pierce, while masterfully building to a climax stronger in reflection than the moment.
