Soshite chichi ni naru

Like Father, Like Son
Koreeda Hirokazu
Japan 2013
120min
V'13

Reshaping a classic babies-switched-at-birth plot into a thoughtful exploration of the meaning of parenthood, Koreeda Hirokazu’s LIKE FATHER, LIKE SON is a supple treatment of familial bonds, expectations and responsibilities that reverberates with heartrending impact. The age-old nature-vs.-nurture debate emerges naturally from a comparison between two very different families, but it’s the story’s intent focus on one father’s intimacy issues and redemptive transformation that makes the film so sublimely moving. (Maggie Lee)
