Like Father, Like Son
(Soshite chichi ni naru)
DetailsDirector: Hirokazu Koreeda Country: Japan
Cert: PG Year: 120 Length: 120 minsLanguage: 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.
