Allison M. 🌱’s review published on Letterboxd:
AFI Fest - Film #9
Shoplifters was very rewarding. The kid performances were great and the story was interesting enough to where it didn’t feel rehashed. Maybe there were elements of Ôshima’s Shônen / Boy, but overall, it was very different.
People are shown fishing and using littler fish and worms for bait is discussed.
