Leave your hearts at the door: Soshite Chichi ni Naru (Like Father Like Son) teaser is here

The latest Koreeda Hirokazu's film finally has a teaser. Just in time for the premier screening at Grand Théâtre Lumière in Cannes on the 18th. Will be release in Japan on 5th Oct.


Ryota has earned everything he has by his hard work, and believes nothing can stop him from pursuing his perfect life and living 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". In the meanwhile, seeing Midori’s devotion to Keita even after learning his origin, and communicating with the rough yet caring family who raised his blood son for the last six years, Ryota also starts to question himself: has he really been a "father" all these years...

The moving story of a man who finally faces himself when he encounters an unexpected wall for the first time in his life.

Added the synopsis + Koreeda's name.

Excited for Cannes, though I'm a bit nervous on their reception. They can be a picky bunch, and boo or walk out from the screening if they don't like it. Here's hoping a positive reaction to this film.

Don't worry I don't think that's the kind of film that'll receive such a reception.
