Synopsis

On the margins of Tokyo, a dysfunctional band of outsiders are united by fierce loyalty, a penchant for petty theft and playful grifting. When the young son is arrested, secrets are exposed that upend their tenuous, below-the-radar existence.

MUBI's take

The renowned director of family dramas Hirokazu Kore-eda enchanted the Cannes jury with this compassionate yet sharp observation of an unusual home, winning the Palme d’Or in the process. Richly humanistic and powered by a sense of anarchy, the film reveals the complexities of the ties that bind us.
