Like Father, Like Son (Soshite chichi ni naru)
Cert: PG Year: 120 Length: 120 mins Language: Japanese
Koreeda's last film I Wish was a highlight of last year's KFF. His piercing new film starts from a conundrum: what if it were discovered, six years after the event, that a hospital had inadvertently swapped two male babies and given them to the wrong parents? Despite marked differences in class, temperament and approaches to parenting, the Nonomiya and Saiki couples respond to this bombshell by exchanging their sons.

Koreeda's facility for casting and directing young performers is spine-tingling; watching these children as they watch their parents is utterly mesmerizing. A deceptively rich and rewarding drama, small of gesture, huge of heart.
Mark Kermode, The Observer
The simple, tragicomic trails of fatherhood are captured with perfection in the latest from Japan's Hirokazu Koreeda. Adam Woodward, Little White Lies
