Like Father, Like Son 2013 Kore-eda

Two children get interchanged after birth. The exchange becomes known to both sets of parents after six years. The conflict in the minds of both parents and the children and the attempt to re-exchange them form the subject of this delicately told film. In a film without dramatic peaks and so simple and domestic in setting, to handle the nuances of feeling with such delicacy is no mean feat. The drama is one that plays out in the hearts, and Koreada has plucked the emotional strings like a musical instrument. This is like a less verbose Bergman
