A good movie

Since this movie had been very well received, I thought I might as well check it out. Well, the first tricky thing about this movie was that even though it was partially dealing with the genetical links involved in a family, in fact, since the 2 boys were obviously some actors, they didn't have any biological link with either families so it felt somehow as if they were in fact switching some adopt... read more

Great subject that of children changed at birth by mistake; Hirokazu Koreed exploits it with the deepness of an essay but never losing the lineal and simple narration. They are the characters who say what they have to say.

A good movie

“Since this movie had been very well received, I thought I might as well check it out. Well, the first tricky thing about this movie was that even though it was partially dealing with the genetical links involved in a family, in fact, since the 2 boys were obviously some actors, they didn't have any biological link with either families so it felt somehow as if they were in fact switching some adopted children. I know, it doesn't sound really doable or practical but I think it would have worked better if they had somehow managed to cast some actors with their actual own children. Furthermore, the 'rich' dad was such a douchebag, it was actually rather difficult to swallow. I mean, seriously, from the moment he was told that he might have another son, he started to act as if he could make it ” read more

From The Superb To The Crap - Movies Seen In 2016 (284 movies items)

"The story is about two Japanese families who got their sons exchanged at birth but only to find out about it 6 years later. The big dilemma that both families face is whether to switch children or not. The main strength of this movie is the unique story and the complexities that comes with this theme. Already from the start when both families meet a lot of tensions occur due to the different backgrounds and personalities of the characters. The acting performances are top notch creating a convinc"
