LIKE FATHER, LIKE SON

Japan 2013
When two little boys turn six years old, their parents find out they have been swapped at birth. The two families, particularly the fathers, couldn’t be more different, one is well off and the other lives in lower class suburbia . It is an extremely difficult situation for both families, especially the fathers, to have to make the decision of whether keep the sons they have raised to this point or to swap. The focus is mainly on Ryota, whose wife had complications at birth and cannot conceive again. His life is well-ordered and has little room for deviation, his journey throughout the film is a painstaking one, reflected by the manner in which he was raised, and is now treating his own son, both his biological one and his other one. A wonderful, heart-warming drama.
