||Synopsis: Would you choose your natural son, or the son you believed was yours after spending 6 years together? Kore-eda Hirokazu, the globally acclaimed director of Nobody Knows, Still Walking and I Wish, returns to the big screen with another family - a family thrown into torment after a phone call from the hospital where the son was born... Ryota has earned everything he has by his hard work, and believes nothing can stop him from pursuing his perfect life as a winner. Then one day, he and his wife, Midori, get an unexpected phone call from the hospital. Their 6-year-old son, Keita, is not 'their' son - the hospital gave them the wrong baby. Ryota is forced to make a life-changing decision, to choose between 'nature' and 'nurture.' Seeing Midori's devotion to Keita even after learning his origin, and communicating with the rough yet caring family that has raised his natural son for the last six years, Ryota also starts to question himself: has he really been a 'father' all these years....

Watch Like Father, Like Son - Alternative Versions.
Two families learn the devastating news that their sons were swapped in
the maternity hospital, and each has been raising the other's
biological offspring for the last six years. In trying to solve this
unholy mess, one father has to face his own vulnerabilities.
Koreda has one again taken his scalpel to family life and crafted a
masterpiece. Fukuyama as the driven, high-achieving Ryota is a
revelation, an advocate of the tough love school of child-rearing, who
never wastes an opportunity to tell his son he should be trying harder,
succeeding more. One word - 'yappari' - reveals his disappointment and
ultimate lack of humanity, and proves to be a pivotal statement in his
journey to self-awareness.
Two archetypal elements of on-form Koreeda make this move a masterclass
in dramaturgy. One is the sparkling, naturalistic performances from the
children. When Ryota tries to explain to his biological son that he now
should be addressing him as 'father', the stubborn, implacable
resistance of the young actor is deftly played. There is a similar
moment when Ryota confronts his tormentor, only for her young son to
appear and remind Ryota of the kind of son he should have been himself.
The other element is judicious deployment of point-of-view. Four
parents go through this traumatic experience, but while the gravity of
the situation for the other three parents is never in doubt, the
journey we experience is Ryota's. He learns not only to love, but to
accept, and even, in one phone call to his stepmother, to repent. Rirî
Furankî is exceptional as electrician handyman Yudai. At first he seems
more concerned with financial gain than natural justice, but slowly
proves himself to be the better father. The fact that he is never shown
suffering over the loss of his own biological son, and yet seems imbued
with the humanity Ryota lacks, is testament to Furanki's performance
and Koreeada' scripting and helming. Machiko Ono and Yôko Maki as the
two wives who support each other are equally impressive.
The situation portrayed is every parent's nightmare, and the film
succeeds in conveying that, while also mining a deep vein of humanity
and compassion, and even managing a few comic flourishes. Superb.
