Cannes Film Festival, Day 4 – Like Father Like Son – Our Yacht Nominee: Phinisi 50!

Like Father Like SonDay 4 of the prestigious Cannes Film Festival sees the premiere of Hirokazu Koreeda’s ‘Soshite chichi ni naru,’ Like Father Like Son. It is the heart wrenching tale of Ryota Nonomiya, a successful business man who’s driven by money but discovers that his biological son was switched with another child at birth. Ryota has earned everything he has by his hard work and believes nothing can stop him from pursuing his perfect life as a winner. However, when he receives an unexpected call from the hospital explaining that his biological son was switched at birth, he is forced to make a life-changing decision, to choose between ‘nature’ and ‘nurture.’ Seeing Ryota’s devotion to his ‘son’ even after learning his origin, is a truly fascinating tale but the plot darkens when he begins to question his existence as a father after all these years.


The globally acclaimed screen writer and director Hirokazu Koreeda originates from Tokoyo, Japan. He has come a long way from his first feature, Maborosi in 1995, based on a Teru Miyamoto novel and drawn from his own experiences while filming. He has won jury prizes at both Venice and Chicago Film Phinisi 50Festival and seeks to obtain the highly coveted Palme d’or, this year in Cannes. This highly anticipated film screens at 11:30 and 22:00 on Saturday 18th of may, 2013.
