Director Hirokazu Kore-eda. Japanese Crime/Drama


This is a complex, moving drama about the forces holding a struggling family together. In Tokyo, poverty-stricken family the Shibatas routinely turn to petty thieving to make ends meet. A rare depiction of Japanese society’s urban underclass, exquisitely drawn and full of Kore-eda’s trademark subtlety and nuanced moral inquiry. Winner Palme D’Or Cannes Film Festival 2018

Starring Kirin Kiki, Lily Franky, Moemi Katayama


Flicks Advisor (comments from our film promoters)

Wonderful film. Thought provoking, warm, humour and a sadness. Subtitled.

Very well received!

A film buffs' film - fairly difficult to follow - but carefully observed and shot following the (very) complicated lives of a Japanese family on the fringes of society.

Extra Event Information
The only Flicks in the Sticks Community Cinema running in a pub! The New Inn opens at 7pm and the films start at 7.30, so come get yourself a glass of something and make your way down to the cosy restaurant, which we take over for the evening by kind permission of the landlady. We have a limit of just 20 people for this subtitled film so it will be worth booking in advance, but we can sometimes find a spare seat or two somewhere! Free ice cream or popcorn too.
