Couple Osamu and Nobuyo, their adolescent "son" Shota, and Nobuyo's "sister" and "mother", Aki and Hatsue, live together in Hatsue's small and isolated house in Tokyo. Although Osamu and Nobuyo have legitimate blue collar jobs, and Aki works as an exotic dancer of sorts in a men's club, they largely exist on Hatsue's deceased husband's pension and through shoplifting whatever they may need, in addition to Nobuyo stealing from her employer. Osamu's outward belief is that if something is in a store and no one has yet bought it, it doesn't actually belong to anyone and thus shoplifting is not stealing from anyone. Osamu and Shota do the bulk of the shoplifting of their day-to-day goods, their shoplifting M.O. which they have perfected to pat routine. On their way home after a shoplifting run, they spot a five year old girl who they have routinely seen huddled outside what they assume is her house, she as usual looking scared and malnourished. This day, they decide to take her home with them, in the process over time learning that she is Juri, an abused child. Ultimately, Osamu and Nobuyo decide to keep her, eventually changing her name to Lin and cutting her hair to make her look different after they discover two months after the fact that her abusive parents are finally looking for her. As Shota ends up being Lin's most frequent companion in he not attending school - Osamu and Nobuyo who have told him that only children who don't have the luxury of being taught at home need to go to school - he involves her in his routine shoplifting, the only life he knows. This new situation of Lin in their lives has the potential to bring this makeshift family come tumbling down around them as each person begins to question their past actions. If this figurative house does come crashing down, the alternative may not be better in the options of what is one's choice versus what is one's circumstance, the latter quite often biologically-based.

The film is about the rise of black nationalist, Enver Hoxha in his quest to change the course of history. The film is a slow, thoughtful drama about the complexity of the situation in the country. It focuses on the relationship between the writer, Nabi, and his teenage son, Konkon. The film has a very strong sense of place, with scenes of Nabi's birthplace, his childhood and the people of his village. The film doesn't want to be a documentary or to have the audience jump to conclusions. It doesn't get bogged down in explaining the meaning of the scenes. It focuses on the action of the characters and the meaning of the film. The film has some very strong performances from the cast. In particular, it is great to see Anwar Eshkol as the head of the Independent State of Albania. Eshkol is an excellent actor, and the scenes he is in are truly chilling. He plays the role of the despot very well. Anwar Eshkol is the best thing about this film. He is great. The film is a great addition to the recent success of a few films about black nationalist movements. The film is a great character study, and one of the best films of the year. This film is not a classic, but it is very good. I give it an A.

I love the title of this movie, and the meaning behind it. The film is a critique of our current system, and is about the corruption that plagues our world. It shows that the corruption and the ignorance that pervade our society is absolutely destroying the Earth. As a child, I was able to identify with the protagonist in this film, who wanted to be a part of something. However, as he got older, he felt so self-absorbed and "enjoyed" his life that he just forgot about the real world. I think that the movie is very good. The acting is outstanding, and I thought the story was very interesting. I loved the fact that the movie was set in the same time period as the real world, and the contrast was pretty effective. I think that the movie is a great example of a movie that shows what the "real world" is like. It is a film that will be remembered for years to come. The whole cast did a great job in their roles, and I think that the whole cast did a great job of bringing the story to life.

If you like to see good acting, a well-made story, and a good cast, this is a good movie. I like the idea of showing how corruption in the government affects people. This is not a soap opera but a movie. It's a movie about corruption in the world. It's also a movie about how a good guy becomes a bad guy because of the way he lived his life. It's a movie about the way people live their lives in the real world and how corrupt government can affect people. I think the idea of corruption is one of the most important ideas in the world. We see it in our daily life and in our world. In this movie, the corruption is shown in a way that makes us think about the corruption in our society. That's why I like the movie so much. I also like the story, because it's about corruption in our society. It's also about the problems we have with corruption in our society. It's also about how we can change our society and how we can make our world better. I think this movie is a good movie. I give it a 7/10.

This is an excellent movie, but it is not for everyone. The story is very original, the characters are well developed, the scenes are very well put together and the film is very stylish. The film is a good mix of drama and drama/thriller, and some scenes are very intense. The story is very similar to "Lost Highway" (a great film). I would give it a 9/10.

There's no way around it. The film is something different. Something like A Clockwork Orange, a radical act of a young man, but with a different tone and approach. The film has a story of a revolution, something that seems to happen only every 20 years or so, but this film is very different. I've seen this film twice and the second time I enjoyed it even more than the first. It's not a political film, but it does show a lot of important things, the idea of terrorism, the rules of war and of course a deep relationship between a man and his art. It is a very interesting film, that you can't help but love it, and I would recommend it to any one who wants to see a film that deals with some kind of a revolution. It is definitely worth watching, but don't take it too seriously, because the film is not just about a revolution.

I was waiting for this film to come out in a theatre but never got around to it. I was not disappointed. This film is extremely well done. It is great to see a film about a drug dealing mafia but in a modern era. The acting is good and the plot is very interesting. There are some fantastic camera angles. This film will be a classic in the future. I hope more directors learn from it. If you are a fan of this film or have seen it, I recommend you to watch it. If you are not a fan of it or have seen it, I would recommend you to not watch it.

I remember watching this film in the mid 90's and thought it was pretty good. The story was good, the acting was good, and the action was good. I recently purchased the DVD and I'm now able to appreciate it more. It's a shame that it's almost impossible to find the film on DVD. I am so happy I found it on Netflix. The film's themes are very meaningful. They also show the conflict between gangs, and the fact that they fight and fight over territory. However, the film is too long. The first half of the film is so slow and it is hard to keep up with what is going on. The second half of the film is much better. It goes faster and it makes sense. The acting is also excellent. This is one of those films where you will probably remember it more than you will remember it now. It is a must watch. I would recommend it to anyone who likes films that show the struggles of gangs and the struggle between the gangs.

I was not expecting much from this movie. I knew it would be a bit on the simple side and light on the drama. I was not disappointed. It was quite the opposite. The movie really did take me into the main character's mind and life. The movie is a story of the inner world of the people. The way the story is told is very well done and keeps you interested in what is going on. The movie does have a few emotional scenes, but it is not too heavy or heavy-handed. I think the main character of the movie is a bit too good-looking and the role of his wife is not well done. It is just not her role to play. I think the director did a good job of portraying the story through the eyes of the main character and his wife. I thought the director did a good job of showing the evolution of the couple and how the situation changes. I think this is the best movie he has done so far. I hope he does a lot of movies. I would recommend this movie to people who like movies about the ordinary people.
