Film review: Like Father, Like Son (PG)
Hirokazu Koreeda, 120mins. Starring: Masaharu Fukuyama, Machiko Ono, Yôko Maki
This rich and very moving drama starts from the simplest of conceits – two sets of parents learn that their six year old sons were swapped at birth – and then probes away at the nature-versus-nurture debate in an ever more complex and unsettling way.
One dad is a thrusting businessman. The other is a bit of a slob... but a very tender and caring father. Working out what is best for the kids becomes an almost impossible task.
