Part of the Kore-eda Retrospective.

After the resounding success of "Shoplifters" last year, we are revisiting the past works of Japanese director Hirokazu Kore-eda.

Our third Sunday afternoon screening could be viewed as an early rumination on the director's most recent success in "Shoplifters."

This story, written and filmed by Hirokazu Kore-eda, is based on a true story from Tokyo, where four children were abandoned by their mother and lived in an apartment for months, unmissed and undetected. He tells the story not as a melodrama about kids in danger, but as a record of long, lonely days, of the younger children playing their games and watching TV, of going out into the city to buy food and find money.
