Buxton Film are very pleased to be able to bring you this year’s Palme d’Or winner at the Cannes film festival. Buxton Film have screened a number of Koreeda’s films over the years and they never disappoint. This one, his best, is about a family of petty thieves who live together in a cramped apartment rented from a dodgy landlord. One day they find an apparently abandoned little girl and take her in – soon she is being trained to join in their money-making schemes but was she really abandoned?
This film is programmed by Buxton Film and features no trailers.
Director: Hirokazu Koreeda
