Japanese master director Hirokazu Koreeda contrasts the frigid emotions of socially correct behavior with the warmth and happiness of a dishonest lower-class Tokyo family, in which money is tight and all methods of obtaining it are permissible, including teaching the children to steal. Who better than Koreeda, a director who whispers instead of shouts, to capture contradictions and issues through a subtle style of storytelling. This film is a thoughtful addition to his parables about happy and unhappy families, studded with memorable characters and believable performances that quietly lead the viewer to reflect on societal values.
